As Hollywood prepared for the Golden Globes, the menu that will be served to the stars was unveiled including the official cocktail, the Moët Ruby Red from Moët & Chandon – celebrating 25 years as the official champagne of the Golden Globes – created by lauded mixologist Karen Grill.
No celebration is ever complete without champagne, and toasting with the cocktail which will be served to the stars is the perfect way for viewers to create glamour at home with Moët and join in on Hollywood’s biggest night on January 10th, 2016.
One of Los Angeles’ most skilled and imaginative mixologists and the woman behind the recently revamped cocktail program at 1933 Group’s Sassafras in Hollywood, Grills’ Moët Ruby Red is modern take on a French 75 cocktail and a personal homage to classic Hollywood cinema that epitomizes Hollywood glamour. Luxurious, bright and topped with Moët & Chandon Brut, the signature libation reflects the energy and elegance of both the beloved champagne and the award show. Served in the Golden Globes lounge (an antechamber to the ballroom) on the big night, the Moët Ruby Red’s raspberry, citrus and tarragon shrub give both a tart kick and ruby red coloring. Like all Moët & Chandon champagnes, the Moët Ruby Red is best enjoyed in a white wine glass, which enhances the effervescence of the champagne and allows for its flavor profile and underlying tasting notes to open and develop.
This year, Moët & Chandon also debuted a custom Golden Globes Mini Moët Champagne Caddy, equipped with the same minis that stars like Chrissy Teigen, Naomi Watts, Amber Heard, Heidi Klum, Chris Pratt, and Aziz Ansari have all infamously indulged in while gliding the carpet.
