The Academy Awards are the industry’s most glamorous night of the year, bringing together the masters of their craft all to one theater at Hollywood and Highland. Film stars from Robert De Niro to Margot Robbie will dress in their best to gather at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. And you know the follow-up afterparty will be just as decadent.

An invite-only soireé, the Governors Ball happens right after the Oscars end, and part of the fun will be fueled by Tequila Don Julio. The premium tequila is the official partner of the Academy’s afterparty where the Hollywood elite will be sipping on cocktails like Round of Applause and Written in the Stars.

Don Julio tapped globally acclaimed mixologist Charles Joly and Mexico Bartender of the Year Israel Barón to develop the party’s lineup of signature cocktails, and they’re letting us in on the recipes so we can make our own at home.

Whether to accompany your own Academy Awards watch party or to make your cocktails feel extra special year-round, read on for how to make the official Governors Balls cocktails.
