Calling all cowboys and cowgirls!

You don't have to be in Nashville Wednesday night to get a taste of the CMT Music Awards. As country stars like Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban mix and mingle at the annual awards show, you can shake up these cocktails – one features no alcohol – at your home viewing party. Charles Phillips, the executive chef at Nashville's Hutton Hotel, has created them especially for this year's official CMT afterparty.

Think the evening's host Kid Rock will be swilling these later tonight?

Make the drinks yourself. Here are the recipes:



The Amplifier


• 1½ oz. sweet-tea vodka
• ½ oz. Grand Marnier
• 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
• 1 tsp. sugar
• 1 lemon wedge


1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
2. Shake and serve straight up in a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.



Guava Mango Shooter


• 6 oz. guava paste
• 5 oz. frozen mango chunks
• 8 oz. apple juice
• ¼ cup water
• 7 basil leaves


1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend on high until smooth. 2. Pour into 10 2-oz. shot glasses.
