Drinks with Drew: The Oscars

When it comes to the Oscars we all have heard the old phrase, “Win or lose, it’s just an honor to be nominated.” Our office mixologist has come up with three drinks that are inspired by this year’s award nominees that will make anyone feel like a winner.

It’s time to lift our spirits with a segment we call, Drinks with Drew! Find his standup website here.
