Some of the biggest names in Hollywood and fashion gathered in West Hollywood Sunday night for Elton John’s annual Oscars viewing party, in support of the music legend’s eponymous AIDS Foundation. This year, the star-studded event was hosted by Billy Porter, Eric McCormack and even Lady Gaga, who made a quick appearance before heading to Dolby Theatre to act as a presenter.

For much of the evening , attendees such as Caitlyn Jenner, Sofia Richie and Donatella Versace hovered around the Belvedere Bar at the center of the outdoor-indoor tent before sitting down for dinner — and considering the dramatic events that transpired on the Oscars stage later that night, we can only assume that they were happy to have a few drinks in their system before watching the awards.

Even if you missed out on the high-wattage, very boozy party, you can still make some of the night’s most popular drinks from home. (Put on some of John’s best tunes in the background, and you’ll practically feel like you were there, sipping on a Cosmo with the likes of Brandi Carlile and Heidi Klum.)

Here’s everything you need to make the fresh cocktails the stars drank this past weekend, all made with Belvedere Vokda.
