See what your favorite celebrities will be sipping this New Year's Eve.
Nothing says celebration like the popping of a champagne cork—and no one knows how to party like celebrities. With their deep pockets, A-list status, and exclusivity, they can get down like it’s going out of style.
So when we thought about New Year’s Eve—instead of thinking about what we’re drinking—let’s take a gamble on what they’re drinking.
While it’s no surprise that the once Cristal-obsessed Jay-Z has switched gears and will most definitely be sipping on Armand de Brignac, or as most people know it, Ace of Spades.
And singer Ne-Yo, he’ll be ringing in the New Year with a bar full of Moet, his bubbly of choice. He knows how to live the champagne life, apparently (all puns intended.)

Best Brut: Delamotte Blanc de Blancs
Brut Champagne is classified as sparkling wine that is bone-dry to off-dry, with either no residual sugar or up to 15 grams per liter. One of the best entries in this category is the 2012 blockbuster from the house of Delamotte.
This brut is a rich, decadent, cellar-worthy Champagne, capable of long life if stored properly. This 100% chardonnay comes from the Grand Cru villages of Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize and Oger, showing the concentration and power of the low-yielding harvest. Elegant beading accompanies lively and fresh aromas of Meyer lemon, sweet-tart candy, kiwi and wildflowers. Creamy on entry and supported by zesty and mouthwatering acidity, more orange peel and lemon zest is met with a deep, mineral finish punctuated by an unyielding wow factor.

A favorite non-alcoholic drink for it’s sweetness and the lovely red cherry on top. The story goes that the young star was out dining with her parents and became jealous of their old-fashioneds with their bright red maraschino cherries. And so, the bartender made her up a drink that looked equally appealing and had a cherry in. Where, exactly, this happened is still debated to this day.

lemon-lime soda or ginger ale

There is speculation that the famous cowboy actor never requested this drink be made for him, that it was inspired by the Shirley Temple. It has been saids that, since the two are so similar in ingredients with only one difference, that the Roy Rogers is simply the less girlie version of the Shirley Temple. Whatever the story behind it, this drink reminds us cherry cola and is fun to drink.
1.5 tsp of grenadine syrup
The directions are the same above. Pour ice and grenadine into a Collins glass and fill to top with cola, adding a cherry on to (or more if you like). Recipe adapted from.

Celebrities and Chefs Will Share Pantry-Friendly Recipes During Amazon&rsquos 10-Hour Cook-A-Thon
Padma Lakshmi, Emeril Lagasse, Carla Hall, Billy Porter, Marcus Samuelsson, Rocco DiSpirito, and more are set to take part in the online event that will raise money for Feeding America.
For many of you out there, the coronavirus pandemic has meant a lot more cooking and screen time—killing the hours at home baking sourdough bread and binge-watching Tiger King. Well, tomorrow, Amazon is prepared to give you plenty of both food and television in a celebrity chef-studded event that also supports a good cause𠅊nd hopefully will provide some easy-to-make recipes in the process.
From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET tomorrow (April 23), Amazon Live—the online giant’s free streaming hub sometimes described as their version of the Home Shopping Network—will be showing a 10-hour cook-a-thon called At Home Cooking featuring 14 celebrity chefs streaming “pantry-friendly recipes” from their home kitchens.
The lineup—listed in order of appearance with their start time—is Matt Adlard & Chelsey White (10 a.m.), Padma Lakshmi (11 a.m.), Carla Hall & Billy Porter (noon), Marcus Samuelsson (1 p.m.), Rocco DiSpirito (2 p.m.), Gaby Dalkin (3 p.m.), Laila Ali (4 p.m.), Eden Grinshpan (5:15 p.m.), Hannah Bronfman (6 p.m.), Elizabeth Chambers (6:30 p.m.), Emeril Lagasse (7 p.m.), and Danny Trejo (7:30 p.m.). Most chefs will be on for one hour except for the final four which will have 30 minute slots.
The event—which is sponsored by Kellogg’s and will raise money to support the non-profit hunger relief organization Feeding America—is described by Amazon as chefs “showing you how to cook with items commonly found in the pantry, helping with meal prep tips, recipe inspiration, and answering questions in a live Q&A.” Additionally, “Links for each recipe will be included with the stream, so viewers can cook with their favorite chefs in real-time or save the recipes for later.”
Sources close to the rapper say he is “straight-edge.”
He’s been sober for nine years after battling with addiction.
8. Chris Martin
Gwyneth Paltrow’s healthiness must have rubbed off on Martin during their marriage because he doesn’t drink anymore.
9. Kristin Davis
She has struggled with alcoholism and didn’t even think she would make it past 30.
10. Rob Lowe
He recently celebrated 25 years of sobriety.
11. Jennifer Lopez
J Lo doesn’t drink because it’s bad for your skin, which makes sense because she looks the same way she did 15 years ago.
12. Daniel Radcliffe
He apparently struggled to return to reality after the Harry Potter franchise ended, but has been sober for two years.
What’s the Best Champagne for Mimosas?
In fact, the best Champagne for mimosas may not be Champagne at all. Because mimosas were introduced to the brunch table via France and the UK, people tend to assume they have to be made with Champagne. But we now know that early forms of the mimosa were enjoyed all over Europe for centuries, using various different sparkling wines, so there’s really no need to limit yourself to just one.
If Champagne is the only drink for you, there are plenty of decadent and delicious Champagne cocktails to choose from, and to find out more about the different types of champagne and how to serve it, check out our handy guide to everything you ever needed to know about Champagne. But if you are willing to experiment with good quality Cava and Prosecco, you will find that you can produce superior mimosas at a fraction of the cost.
This Is What All Your Favorite Celebrities Will Eat At The Golden Globes This Year
AKA, here's what Ryan Gosling will be chowing down on this Sunday.
The Golden Globes are always a fun award show to watch, because unlike the Academy Awards, you get to see your favorite celebrities eat and drink (and drink!) their way through the whole ceremony. This Sunday, Jan. 8, the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be held at The Beverly Hilton, and the hotel's executive chef Alberico Nunziata is preparing a totally delish&mdashand predictably fancy&mdashthree-course dinner for nearly 1,300 celebs, filmmakers and their guests.
Here's what's on the menu Sunday night:
In addition to over 1,500 Moët & Chandon Impérial minis, 125 cases of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2006 and Moet Rosé Impérial magnums, bartenders will also be shaking up a signature cocktail for the award show called the Moët Diamond, created by actress and lifestyle expert Olivia Culpo.
If you want to make the Moët Diamond at home while you watch (Do we sense the beginnings of a drinking game here?), here's the recipe:
- 3 oz Moët Imperial Brut Champagne
- 1/2 oz Orange Liqueur
- 2 dashes Cherry Bitters
- 1 Rock Candy Stick
To Make: Pour orange liqueur into champagne flute and add dash of cherry bitters. Gently pour chilled champagne and garnish with rock candy stick.
Once the show starts, nominees like Ryan Reynolds, Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman will sit down to a golden beet salad made with herb-roasted golden and red beets, watermelon radish, arugula, crumbled goat cheese, grapefruit, roasted pistachios and ceviche lime dressing. Sounds refreshing, no?
The Main Course
The next course is a duo of Chilean sea bass and filet mignon. The fish will be roasted and topped with celery puree and sun-dried tomato pesto, while the steak will come with 24-month aged parmigianino risotto, beech mushrooms and broccolini flowers. For vegetarian stars, like Jessica Chastain and Casey Affleck, there will also be a mushroom risotto served with seasonal veggies.
Now for the best part: dessert. Celebs don't just get one treat&mdashthey get THREE. Executive pastry chef Thomas Henzi of The Beverly Hilton is preparing not only neapolitan almond cakes with orange mascarpone cream, but also chocolate gianduja crunch bars and profiteroles with amaretto vanilla cream, sugared almonds and chocolate sauce.
Fun fact: It will take 11 chefs, 120 culinary staff, 50 bartenders, 160 stewards and 250 servers to deliver all of this to Golden Globe attendees.

Charity Mary's Meals teams up with celebrities to share favourite childhood recipes
Global charity Mary’s Meals has teamed up with celebrities, including Lorraine Kelly, Ferne McCann, and Nadiya Hussain, to share their favourite childhood recipes in a bid to raise money to feed hungry children.
Every print gift card, which is pried at £15.90 - the amount it costs to feed one hungry child for a year - will come with a special recipe from Lorraine Kelly.
Her recipe will also be available online along with others from Ferne and Nadiya, all inspired by ‘The Food We Grew Up On.’
Each recipe is one that’s been passed down from their mother (or mother figure), and to this day brings back memories of childhood.
Britain’s Celebrity Best Home Cook finalist Ferne has shared her Nannie Connie’s Sausage Waaaah’ - a delicious casserole given its quirky name by the children of the McCann family growing up.
Ferne says that the nutritious dish is packed with lots of delicious veg, swimming in a rich tomato sauce and topped with sausage meat.
Ferne said: "This was My Nannie Connie’s recipe that she used to make for my mum.
"It’s a really homely, cosy dinner that my mum often made for me and my sister. I don’t know why we called it Sausage Waaaah but it’s stuck and when I make this for Sunday she knows it by this name too.
"It’s just one of those recipes that reminds me of childhood and is a real comfort meal."
Daytime TV host Lorraine Kelly’s recipe reminds her of heading home. ‘Mum’s Chicken Soup’ - still a staple in the Kelly family today - is made with carrots, leeks, and chicken.
Lorraine Kelly said: "My mum makes this every time I go home. It’s proper comfort food and takes me back to my childhood."
GBBO favourite Nadiya’s Hussain’s has picked her ‘Mum's Bengali Korma.’
Nadiya explained that she grew up with the delicious aroma of this chicken dish, with warm flavours of cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, and a hit of green chilli.
Speaking of her recipe, Nadiya said: "The korma I grew up with had an aroma that took over the house and hit you in the face when you walked into the kitchen.
"This is one of the recipes that says ‘home’ to me because nobody cooks this dish like Mum does."
These recipe cards offer a different gift idea for mother's day.
The recipe from Lorraine Kelly will come with a print gift card, plus hers and more celebrity recipes can also be found on the Mary’s Meals website.
The charity, which began in 2002, provides one daily meal in a place of learning to encourage hungry children into the classroom where they receive an education that can, in the future, be their ladder out of poverty.
Daniel Adams, executive director of Mary’s Meals, said: "When schools across the world closed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mary’s Meals adapted quickly to ensure hungry children did not go without and were able to receive a nutritious daily meal at home instead.
"Some schools have since re-opened and we are now safely reaching 1.6 million children, whether at school or at home.
"This Mother’s Day we want to celebrate all the wonderful women across the world who support the Mary’s Meals global movement, whether serving meals or fundraising for our important work to feed hungry children.
"Their dedication means we can provide life-changing meals to children in some of the world’s poorest countries. Our Mother’s Day card feeds a child for a whole year - there’s no better present than that."
