MAJOR Moët News!

YIPEE!!! It’s 2015 (OMG!) we’re back AND we have a MAJOR announcement!

MOET HAVE ASKED IMPATIENT FOODIE TO DESIGN THE COCKTAILS FOR THE GOLDEN GLOBES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you freakin’ believe it?!?!?!?!?!!!! I still can’t. Every time the Moet peeps call or email me, I’m like, [peekaboo_content] “Is this really happening? Do they have the wrong person?” But, lucky for me they like me! They really like me!!!

We have created 2 Moet cocktails for the Golden Globes – Moet Sunset Starlet and Moet Bijou Rogue.  Additionally, we created 2 “Impatient” versions of the cocktails which are easier to make at home/if you have limited supplies at your local liquor store. The recipes are at the bottom of this post 🙂

For this incredible opportunity, I have to say thank you to Moet, but I also thank all of YOU, fellow Impatient Foodies! I launched this blog this past July very quietly, not quite sure how it would play out or even what I was getting myself into. Honestly, I felt pretty insecure about it all… But your reception has been so encouraging and given me confidence. I am sincerely so appreciative of your feedback and of your time. I know you’re all incredibly busy – juggling a million things, probably feeling pulled in multiple directions – so the fact that you take the time to come to Impatient Foodie, read, cook, share pics, tweet, and comment fills me with so much joy and gratitude. So, I lift my Moet filled coupe glass to you, dearies!  I wish you a very happy, healthy, fun, prosperous 2015. I am so grateful for your support and I thank you from the bottom of my little impatient heart. I raise my Moet filled glass and cheers to you. Let’s take 2015 by the horns.

For viewers who want to have glamorous cocktails with the same elegant look and gourmet flavors of the Official Golden Globes Cocktails, but don’t have access to a well stocked liquor store (or are just super impatient!) these “Impatient Cocktails” are easy-to-make and perfect Globes viewing companions! No celebration is ever complete without champagne! I tested these on my family on New Year’s Eve and things got rowdy! 😉  

Note: Careful, these go down reeealllll easy 😉 

Moët Sunset Starlet

- Makes 1-

Ingredients

¾ ounce Lillet
½ ounces Dry Curacao
¾ teaspoon honey

Note that this is only measurement in a teaspoon, not ounces!

¼ ounce lemon juice
2 dash orange bitters
Spritz of fresh clementine + twist
Moet Rose Imperial

Instructions

  1. Combine Lillet, Dry Curacao, honey, lemon juice and orange bitters in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake vigorously.
  3. Pour over ice into a white wine glass, and top with Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial to taste (we like about 2:1 ratio, cocktail base: Moet Rose).
  4. Garnish with a fresh clementine peel or orange peel.

Moët Impatient Starlet

Ingredients

½ ounce Vodka
½ ounce Cointreau
½ teaspoon honey
Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial

Instructions

  1. Combine Vodka, Cointreau and honey in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake vigorously and pour into a white wine glass.
  3. Top with Moet & Chandon Rosé Impérial.

Moët Impatient Bijou

Ingredients

2 ounce Gin (Smooth Ambler)
1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
2 dash orange bitters
Brandied cherry
Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial

Instructions

  1. Combine Sweet Vermouth, Gin and orange bitters in a cocktail shaker over ice.
  2. Pour into a coupe glass.
  3. Top with Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial to taste, and garnish with a brandied cherry


(Don’t forget to include a tiny bit of the cherry syrup!)

Moët Bijou Rouge

I think this recipe would be enough for 2-3 Moet Bijou Rouge cocktails, depending on your taste. The flavor of this one is much stronger, so I suggest using less base for this cocktail. Brandied cherry is important here!

Ingredients

2 ounces of Gin (Smooth Ambler)
½ ounce Dry Curacoa
¾ sweet vermouth (carpano antiqua)
2 dashes of orange bitters
Brandied cherry garnish (adding in a touch of the brandied cherry syrup)

 

Instructions

  1. Combine the Gin, Dry curacao, vermouth, and orange bitters in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Mix well to combine.
  3. Pour into a coupe glass (if you have one) and top with Moet Brut.
  4. Be sure to top with brandied cherry and add in a little of the yummy, sweet syrup.
