oscar social network drink Oscars 2011: Buzzed Lightbeer, the Stammer Royale and other best picture cocktailsYou may have already picked your favorite in the office Oscar pool, but which 2011 best picture nominee will you honor in your awards night alcohol consumption?

NYC booze purveyor Crush Wine & Spirits has come up with 10 signature cocktails to mix during your Oscar party — or self-loathing solo viewing — and we’re feeling a little conflicted about whether our taste or taste buds should dictate our drinking.

Taking cues from movie titles and themes, some are straightforward (“The Fighter” is just a glass full of whiskey) and others… a bit more subtle (“Toy Story 3” salutes a Michelada with the “Buzzed Lightbeer”). 

Our personal favorite? “The Kids Are All Right: A Modest Proposal,” a spiked chocolate milk that evokes Swiftian satire to calm down any children staying up late to watch the show.

Make it a double.
