To celebrate the 2013 Academy Awards, Bambara is featuring original specialty drinks, each designed for an Oscar “Best Picture” nominee and crafted by the expert bartenders in Bambara’s popular bar, “The Vault.” Available now through Feb. 24 when the awards are bestowed, every vote (order) will be tallied until the big night when patrons are invited to see how their selections fare against the Academy’s awardees. Bambara’s mixologists will issue their predictions on Thursday, Feb. 21. in the Vault.
“Our Oscar-themed cocktails this year were really a pleasure to create because there is a lot of creative inspiration from the subject matter and tone of the nominated films,” said Bambara’s expert mixologist, Austin Craig. “I was able to incorporate a local Utah whiskey that relates to the old wild west into the drink for Django Unchained which I thought matched up really well with the movie’s setting.”
With prices ranging from $9 to $15, the “Vault” is offering nine different Oscar-inspired specialty drinks until Oscar night on Feb. 26, including:
Beasts of the Southern Wild, $12
Milagro Tequila, Peach Schnapps, Fresh Squeezed Orange Wheel

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
