Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Hope your weekend went well! Our’s came and went, but we did manage to squeeze in a movie at the local theater. This might be sad, but i’ll admit it anyway, my favorite part of going to the movies is the previews. I get so excited seeing whats coming out soon. One that caught our eye was “The Greatest Showman”,  coming out next week inspired by the legacy of P.T. Barnum which we all know for the Barnum and Bailey circus.  In celebration of its release, Moet has teamed up with a couple of star mixologists, Michelin Star-mixologist, Brian Van Flandern, to create a few seasonal champagne cocktail recipes inspired by the film. We took advantage of them to bring in the new year, but they work for any cocktail party. Try them and let us know what you think!

  • 1 oz. Apple Juice
  • ½ oz. Hennessy VSOP Cognac
  • ½ oz. Agave Nectar
  • ½ oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

Add all ingredients (except Moët) to mixing glass. Add large ice, shake vigorously, add Moët Imperial. Tumble roll back and forth one time to mix in the champagne, and double strain over fresh ice into a highball glass. Garnish with three different size rings of Orange, Lemon and Lime perched inside each other on the edge of the glass.
