After the Academy Awards are handed out, the celebs will head to this year’s Governor’s Ball to party the night away (after all, the Oscars only end at 8 p.m. LA time). They’ll be imbibing this Ciroc cocktail, which you can make for your own guests at home. It’s calorie-conscious, which is sure to please all those stars who are triple-Spanxing it on the red carpet.
