Drinks for People's Choice movie winners

I'm going to take a rain check on the music entry I promised for Sunday in the footnote to Science fiction, fantasy, and horror at the Golden Globes.  I'll get to the music winners for the Golden Globes in a future post in reference to the nominees at the Critics' Choice and BAFTA awards.  Instead, I'm going to salute a couple of winners at last week's People's Choice Awards with drinks in their honor from Tipsy Bartender.

The first winning movie is "Furious 7," which won for Favorite Film and Favorite Action Film.
Favorite Movie

Furious 7 *** WINNER
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Inside Out
Jurassic World
Pitch Perfect 2
Favorite Action Movie

Furious 7 *** WINNER
Avengers: Age of Ultron
The Divergent Series: Insurgent
Jurassic World
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
I'd have been rooting for "Jurassic World" in both categories.  After all, it was the opening weekend leader until "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" took over.  Also, I already posted drink recipes for it along with drinks for "Avengers: Age of Ultron."  I also posted entries about "Insurgent" and "The Scorch Trials," making "Furious 7" the only action movie nominee I did not write about--until now.  It looks like being the one non-science-fiction nominee in a field full of them made it stand out.  At least "The Martian" won for Favorite Dramatic Movie over "The Age of Adaline," "Fifty Shades of Grey," "The Longest Ride," and "Straight Outta Compton."  That's a case where being the sole science fiction movie ("Age of Adeline" is a fantasy) helped it stand out.

Enough of my opinions about the nominees and winners.  Here's Skyy and Inna with the drink for the movie, The Fast and Furious Cocktail - Tipsy Bartender.

A glow in the dark cocktail based on the hit movie....THE FAST AND FURIOUS 7.
1 oz. (30ml) Rum
1 oz. (30ml) Coconut Rum
1 oz. (30ml) Apple Pucker
1 oz. (30ml) Blue Curacao
1 oz. (30ml) Lemon Lime Soda
Soda Water
Glow in the dark ice cubes:
Follow over the jump for the second movie, "Minions."

The movie itself was nominated in only one category.
Favorite Family Movie

Minions *** WINNER
Hotel Transylvania 2
Inside Out
I'm surprised, as I expected "Inside Out" would win.  Well, maybe with the critics, actors, and animators voting, it will win the more prestigious awards later in the year.  Stay tuned for my coverage of those.

One of the voice actresses was nominated for two awards.  She lost the one for being a voice actress, but won for her live-action work.
Favorite Movie Actress

Sandra Bullock *** WINNER
Anne Hathaway
Melissa McCarthy
Meryl Streep
Scarlett Johansson
Favorite Animated Movie Voice

Selena Gomez *** WINNER
Adam Sandler
Amy Poehler
Sandra Bullock
Again, if the insiders were voting, I'd expect Amy Poehler would have won for "Inside Out," but the insiders weren't.  At least Sandra won the "Miss Congeniality" of awards show honors.

Now, the drink recipe: The Minions Cocktail - Tipsy Bartender

Everybody loves The Minions! They're cute, funny and now they're a cocktail. Enjoy!
