Naomi Watts doesn't need to be the only one celebrating her SAG Award nomination on Sunday.

Even if you're only catching the big night from the small screen, honor the actress and her film The Impossible with a specialty cocktail created by mixologists at Jacob's Creek, the Australian wine line for which Watts serves as an ambassador – and is "not a bad looking face for the brand," chief winemaker Bernard Hickin adds.

"This delicately bubbly and bittersweet cocktail is based on the inspiring true story of one family's struggle to survive and locate each other after the catastrophic Tsunami in Southeast Asia," Andrew White, mixologist at the Brooklyneer in N.Y.C., tells PEOPLE.

"This muddled pinkish-red cocktail embodies the incredible hardships Naomi's character and family endures, as well as the unbreakable love and bond between them in the midst of disaster and despair."
