The GREY GOOSE High Five cocktail was served as the signature drink of the 2015 ESPY Awards.
Created by GREY GOOSE ambassador, Guillaume Jubien, the High Five cocktail is a refreshing answer to the summer heat, crafted with GREY GOOSE vodka, watermelon juice, coconut water, lime juice and a habanero pepper, fresh and light ingredients that were influenced by the ESPYS.
Guests at last week’s ESPY events where the first to taste the delicious libation. Notables in attendance included Robbie Rogers (LA Galaxy), Sydney Leroux (Western New York Flash) and Michelle Beadle (ESPN anchor), as well as VIP athletes and celebrities Caitlyn Jenner, LeBron James, Abby Wambach, Lindsey Vonn, Ronda Rousey, Stephen Curry, Victor Espinoza, Peyton Manning, Derek Jeter, Rachel McAdams, Jake Gyllenhaal and more.
The GREY GOOSE High Five is easy to make at home and a perfect way to cool off during summer. See the recipe below.
