Hollywood award season kicks off this Sunday with the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs this Sunday, January 8th on NBC at 8PM EST/5PM PST. This year’s host is Jimmy Fallon, so even if you’re not typically into awards shows, Fallon just might make you a believer with his sharp wit, boyish charm and spot-on impressions. And if you are into awards shows, AND all of the fashion pomp and circumstance that goes along with them…then you can get your eye candy fix by tuning into E! News at 6PM EST/3PM PST for the red offering up close views of your favorite stars’ attire and accessories.

Whether you plan to enjoy the evening with your BFFs all dolled to the nines, stay in and channel Zsa Zsa in a silk robe, heeled Marabou slip-on and favorite chandelier earrings, or opt for low-key lounge-out in your comfiest althleisure wear, you can get festive by preparing a few easy appetizers to serve with this year’s official Golden Globes cocktail.

This year’s signature drink, “The Moët Diamond”, was created by model and Actress, Olivia Culpo. Sit back and sip in style with this smooth creation:

The Moët Diamond

Ingredients:
3 ounces Moët Imperial Brut Champagne
½ ounce orange liqueur
2 dashes cherry bitters
1 rock candy stick

Preparation:
Pour orange liqueur into champagne flute and add dash of cherry bitters. Gently pour chilled champagne. Garnish with rock candy coated swizzle stick.

If you’re feeling really enthusiastic, you can prepare your own version of the official Golden Globes menu created by Chef Alberico Nunziata that over a thousand of the biggest names in Hollywood will enjoy.

As for me, I’ve perused the offerings for inspiration for my own laid-back offering of easy eats. I plan to enjoy a nice salad and
Moët Diamonds paired with cream puffs.

Cheers!
