With the Academy Awards coming up, Quince is celebrating the occasion with a monthlong array of cocktails, all with a classic Hollywood feel to them.

Throughout the month of February, lead bartender Corey Harrison will give customers an opportunity to taste his modern interpretation of classic cocktails, which pay homage to Oscar-winning films.

Some of the highlights from the drink list, with all cocktails costing $12:

Tita’s Sangaree: As Tita expressed herself through her cooking in “Like Water for Chocolate,” Harrison does so with our version of a traditional Sangaree, with Tequila Reposado, lime, Punt e Mes, Lambrusco and rosemary meringue.

Casablanca Cobbler: To honor the revelers who celebrated drinking throughout this iconic film, with quince-infused cognac, lemon, Meyer lemon tincture and sparkling wine.

Vesper: This stylish Martini first appeared in “Casino Royale,” coined by James Bond in honor of his love interest Vesper Lynd, with London dry gin, Swan’s Neck vodka and lillet blanc.

Chinatown Collins: No need for crisp linens and pearls as Faye Dunaway did to sip on our version of this classic drink with London dry gin, lime, Luxardo maraschino and antique seltzer.

Devil’s Island Daiquiri: Inspired by the 1973 film “Papillon,” this is the perfect potion to help Dega and Charrière mount another escape, with Barbancourt 8-year-old rum, lime, ginger-cinnamon honey potion and Tiki bitters.

La Ciociara: An homage to Sophia Loren for her Oscar-winning portrayal of Cesira in this film, better known as “Two Women,” with Russell’s Reserve Rye, Marie Duffau Armagnac, Amaro Meletti and chocolate bitters.

Mrs. Robinson’s Cocktail: The perfect ammunition for any seducer, with Scotch, Barolo Cinato, Punt e Mes, 82’ P/X, orange and Peychaud’s Bitters.

Quince is located at 470 Pacific Avenue. Bar and lounge hours are from 5-10 Monday-Saturday.
