I look forward to the Academy Awards every year. I love all the outfits, interviews, and speeches that carry on even after they start the music to cut them off. And this year, one of my absolute favorite actors/performers/all-around too talented guys, Neil Patrick Harris, is hosting so you know I’ll be watching every single second.

Out of all the movies this year, The Theory of Everything is my favorite. The story of strength, determination, and inspiration really struck a chord with me. Turning this movie into a recipe seemed nearly impossible when I first thought about it. However because Stephen was and still is so brilliant and complex, that inspired me to go ultra simplistic with the recipe to honor the film and the Oscars. Plus, in reality, Stephen met his wife at a New Year’s party, so it had to have champagne!

A Chambord Royale is the perfect bubbly cocktail to toast an evening of Oscar celebration in style. Not to mention these adorable DIY champagne glass decorations, inspired by the bow ties Stephen wears throughout the movie, make the event that much more special!
