As you may have seen on my Social Media, I’ve been doing some school night drinking on Wednesday evening – naughty! But this one was special, as my other half and I were the proud guests of GREY GOOSE® – The World’s Best Tasting Vodka evening celebrating the launch of ‘Boulangerie François’ where guests were treated to bespoke GREY GOOSE martini consultations at The Devil’s Advocate Bar, located in the heart of Edinburgh.
Gorgeous canapés, a menu of 6 signature martinis and Grey Goose fizz on the arrival were just such a treat in the lovely venue with the amazing company of local and global talents. Guests included Game of Throne’s and Downton Abbey actress Rose Leslie, Joy McAvoy, Tim Visser, Anna Freemantle, Louise Linton, Jean Johansson, Tessa Hartmann, Diane Knox Campbell, Lorraine Herbison and Howie Nicholsby. We all enjoyed a selection of GREY GOOSE cocktails and bespoke GREY GOOSE martinis that were created to each individual’s personal taste profile by brand ambassadors Omar Sequera and Oli Blackburn.
If you’re like me, and like bitter sweet flavours, then I’m happy to share with you my very own bespoke martini recipe with you, which was created for me on the evening:
– A shot of Grey Goose Vodka (or 2)
– fresh grapefruit juice (just a little bit)
– grapefruit zest
– elderflower berry juice (I know, yum!)
– Fresh ginger puree
Shake up and drink over ice! Delish!
The history of the brand is also quite unique as Grey Goose is made from wheat and spring water that is naturally filtered through the limestone of French Gensac-La-Pallue (Cognac Region).
Such a splendid evening! Thank you Grey Goose! WE LOVED IT!
AND guess what? I’ll be in Spain from today, so catch up with all my updates on Instagram (@secretlittlestars), Twitter (@SecretlilStars) and Facebook (Secret little Stars)!
