Adam Seger On His Way to the Oscars?!

It's no secret that master mixologist Adam Seger rubs elbows with the likes of Oprah, as he was commissioned to create signature cocktails for her celebrity-studded wrap party last year. So this latest news shouldn't come as a surprise.
This time around, he just might be on his way to the Academy Awards—with your help. Viola Davis, Meryl Streep and Brad Pitt are all stumping for votes to snag Oscars, and Seger's politicking for his cocktail to be named the signature drink of the legendary Governor's Ball.
"My Red Carpet Fizz cocktail has been submitted for The Governor's Ball, and will be considered based on taste and presentation (which I am very proud of) and social media buzz," Seger tells 312DD.
The cocktail is simply beautiful, featuring Moët Imperial, HUM Botanical Spirit and a single rose petal. It would also serve as an ideal Valentine's Day drink, and Seger has generously provided the recipe below:
Fill a chilled Champagne flute halfway with ice. Stir one ounce each Perfect Puree Yuzu Luxe Sour Mix (or fresh juice sour mix) and Hum with fresh ice. Strain into flute and top with Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut Reserve. Garnish with a single rose petal.
Continually refresh as you wish with Moët & Chandon Imperial, as the Champagne will float on top of the HUM Sour, but its effervescence will deliver HUM's heady cardamom and kaffir lime notes.
