So often, we see the paparazzi hounding celebrities about the clothes they're wearing or the fad diet they're trying. We decided to "cut to the chaser" and find out what they like to drink. After all, the beverage you choose can say a lot about you (and you can bet we'll cover that in a later blog).
Kate Hudson - Wine & Tequila
Kate had to give up her love affair with these beverages of choice in 2009 to lose weight for "Earthbound." She's quoted as saying, "I love tequila. I love wine. To be in New York for two weeks and not have one beverage?! I'm not sure I've ever done that."
President Obama - Bud Light
Remember the "Beer Summit?" Most people probably can't recall what it was about, but everyone remembers Obama choosing to drink the quintessential blue collar beverage: a Bud Light.
Madonna - Pomegranate Martini
Now known as "The Madonna," this trendy drink tastes as good as it looks. Here's the recipe:
1 1/2 oz. of vodka
1 oz. Pomegranate juice
1 1/2 oz. fresh blackberry puree
1 oz. cranberry juice
Combine the ingredients in a shaker half filled with ice. Shake well and serve in martini glasses garnished with a fresh lemon/orange slice.
Eva Mendes - Screwdriver
The go-to drink for everything from a night out to a head cold, Eva professed her love for screwdrivers when admitting to imbibing before shooting a sex scene with Joaquin Phoenix. "I'm very professional and I don't usually drink on the job but that morning I had to have something. It was my first sex scene and thank God James Gray was directing it. He did it at the end of the shoot, so it was the last day and I was really, really comfortable with James and Joaquin."
Vince Vaughn - Vodka Red Bull
Vince is sticking with the hottest drink from a decade ago, the Vodka Red Bull. Some things never change.
Anne Hathaway - Skinnygirl Margarita
We must admit, we'd never heard of it either, but we did find the recipe. If anyone would like to try it and leave a review, please comment below!
1 1/2 oz tequila (100% agave - count 1, 2 while you pour, no need for measuring
1 Splash lime juice (from one freshly squeezed lime)
1 Splash Orange liqueur (Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec )
Makes one cocktail. Combine all ingredients over a glass of ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and salt (or sugar) if you'd like.
John Travolta - Bombay Sapphire Martini
Keeping it classy, Travolta prefers libations that match his eye color.
Oprah - Lemondrop Vodka Martini
Arguably the most powerful woman in the world, Oprah shows no weakness when it comes to getting a little tipsy. She even concocted the drink herself! Here's the recipe:
Juice of 6 lemons
4 tablespoons sugar
6 fresh mint leaves
4 shots vodka
Ice in shaker
1 sugar-rimmed martini glass
Mix lemon juice, sugar and vodka in a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake well and pour into sugar-rimmed martini glass. Garnish with mint.
Mary-Kate Olsen - Wine Spritzer
White wine, that is.
Jennifer Aniston - Margarita
Jennifer has admitted on more than one location that she adores Mexican food, and what goes better with a chimichanga than an ice cold margarita?
George W. Bush - Buckler
Former President Bush (of the "W" variety) swore off alcohol at the age of 40. He now satisfies his craving with a Buckler, a non-alcoholic beer brewed by Heineken. He isn't alone on the Buckler bandwagon, though. VP Joe Biden is also a fan.
Andre the Giant (1946 - 1993) - Beer
R.I.P. big guy. It is said that Andre once consumed 119 beers in six hours. That's one beer every three minutes!
