It’s time to cozy up this Sunday with your favorite pajamas and a bag of buttery popcorn…because the Emmys are here again!

While we won’t be getting glam ourselves (unless you call PJs glam), we certainly love to admire our fave TV stars walk the red carpet in their fab gowns. And in honor of the Emmys, we shook up two cocktail recipes for you and your gals to sip on as you watch the stars of Game of Thrones, The People vs. OJ, and Veep win awards. Yep, we said it.

So get your shakers out and get comfy on the couch!
