Oscar approaches, which means it is time to plan Oscar watch parties.  As the dictionary points out a starlet is a young actress on the rise to become a future star.  Many walk the red carpet each year in hope of becoming the next “big thing.”  The Starlet Cocktail creates a huge splash as the next big thing with the flavors of light anise, hints of citrus, deep raspberry and effervescence tickling at the nose in anticipation of the excitement to unfold.
