    A midtown NYC bar will mix $1,000 cocktails during the Academy Awards.

    That's one expensive hangover.

    A midtown Manhattan bar is offering $1,000 cocktails Sunday night, giving bourgeois boozers the opportunity to watch the Oscars while sipping in style.

    The Hudson Library Bar on W. 58th St. will mix the pricey Illy Issimo Academy Gold Cocktails throughout Oscar night for patrons willing to open their wallets, the Daily News reported.

    Made from rum, Illy Issimo Latte Macchiato, lime juice and strawberry puree, the cocktails feature a floating miniature Italian chocolate Oscar statue.The extravagant drinks are served in a martini glass rimmed with edible gold.

    Patrons at the bar said they wouldn't indulge in the sinfully expensive beverage.

    "They would have to put the elixir of life inside it," Brooklyn student Danielle Curran jokingly told the Daily News.

    German TV correspondent Silke Haas said she would only purchase the drink if it included "a Cartier ring or some diamond jewelry."

    The upside to dropping some serious coin on the ritzy drink? All proceeds from the cocktail's sales go to charity.
