While many are watching the Academy Awards for the fashion, the celebrities, and the hopes that Leo will finally win an Oscar, Cruzan Rum is celebrating what is often the most entertaining aspect of the show: the speeches. The nominees worked hard to win their golden statues, and deserve the opportunity to take their time and thank everyone who made it possible!
In between the many speeches, give yourself an award by whipping up the Cruzan® I’d Like To Thank Sparkler. With fruity key lime rum and sparkling wine, it’s a festive drink that’s perfect to toast to the Academy.
