Grey Goose Celebrates Awards Season With Film-Inspired Cocktails

By Brie Strohmeyer

Grey Goose Vodka helped kick off Oscar weekend on Friday with a special lunch at the swanky SoHo House in West Hollywood. The ultra-exclusive celebrity hot spot, with its sweeping views of Los Angeles, served as the perfect backdrop for the popular vodka brand to showcase five specially-created award season cocktails. The custom drinks pay homage to this year’s best picture nominees and will be served at several Tinseltown soirees this weekend, including the star-studded Vanity Fair bash.

Several famous faces glittered the garden terrace dinning room. (I won’t name-drop since the SoHo house is very protective of its clientele’s privacy.) In addition to celebrity eye-candy, attractive and well-dressed Grey Goose brand ambassadors served as as charming hosts and mixologists, and explained the inspirations behind each of the five film-inspired drinks that made up the menu, which span the spectrum from fruity and light concoctions to heavier options.

To honor best picture nominee Lincoln and our iconic president played so well by Daniel Day-Lewis, the “Monsieur Le President” was created. The drink combines Grey Goose Vodka with apple and cinnamon flavors and tastes a little like baked apples. But, if there is a correlation between favorite drink of the day and the best picutre Oscar, then Argo looks to be a lock. The citrusy infused, pink cocktail, named “True Story,” was a hit with almost everyone.

Want to try one of the drinks for your Oscar party? You can find the recipes on the Grey Goose website. Even if you’re not at a Hollywood party rubbing elbows with the stars, you can toast their victories with the same stylish drinks that they do!
