The Govenors Ball is the official after party of this year’s Academy Awards and, for the first time, luxury Tequila brand Don Julio is sponsoring the event.

Throughout the evening, the Tequila maker will serve The Protagonist cocktail, its new signature serve created by award-winning bartender Charles Joly.

The new cocktail combines Don Julio Blanco with Pimm’s, lemon juice, syrup and tonic water.

Don Julio expects to serve 5,000 Protagonists over the course of the evening, which will require more than 1,300Kg of hand carved ice, half-a-mile of orange twists, 2,000 edible flowers and 1,500 tarragon sprigs.

Diageo recently announced that it was looking to up its eco credentials, pledging to remove all non-biodegradable straws and stirrers across their entire business.
