While we congratulate all of the talented actors, directors and writers who won at the 2019 Emmy Awards, the real winners of the night were these delicious Ketel One Vodka cocktails.
Created by award-winning bartender Charles Joly, these official Emmy-worthy drinks were served to the talented men and women who attended and enjoyed the awards this year. “Each original cocktail is composed of globally-inspired ingredients as a nod to the talented winners and nominees who inspire us with their incredible commitment to diversity and inclusivity,” Joly says.
Even if you couldn’t be at the Emmy Awards, you can still make these three cocktails (and one delicious mocktail) at home using the below recipes. And if you’re feeling like getting the star treatment, you can simply order a Marvelous Mule Cocktail Courier kit so you’ll have everything you need to make eight of the drinks delivered right to your door.
