Oscar-Rita Hot Cubed BBQ Shrimp #SundaySupper with the #Oscars

Everyone knows The Oscars start on the Red Carpet.  At our house, we love Appetizing Starters… So for tonight’s Sunday Supper, we are taking it into our family room.

The only thing that could make Hollywood’s Hottest Night even better … a fabulous Cocktail to go along with our appetizers!  I was pondering what fun drink to serve during the Sunday Supper Oscar’s Party.  At first I was thinking Oscar-tinis but I thought it may be a little too sweet to serve with my Hot Cubed BBQ Shrimp.   One of my favorite shows is The Chew with Mario Batali…I just love him… they suggested serving Oscar-Rita’s! Perfect! Right then and there, I knew, the only thing that could make this night better would be Oscar-Rita’s!
