Cocktail of the Week: Moët Ruby Red

The Golden Globe Awards by the Numbers: 40 Chefs, 1,500 Bottles of Moet

It's Friday and let's face it, the only question we're currently asking ourselves is "where are the drinks?" From margaritas to wine, we can't wait to ditch our desks and head to the nearest cocktail, wherever that may be. So today, in honor of the upcoming weekend -- we've got a delicious cocktail just for you that is sure to wipe away all your workweek blues.

Allow us to introduce you to the Moët Ruby Red

The Golden Globes are this weekend, and while we may not have a hair and makeup team to doll us up or a gorgeous gown to swan around in, we can enjoy the cocktail stars will be sipping–and do it without Spanx on. Here's how to make it, thanks to The Crimson Kiss.

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 oz tarragon-raspberry shrub (directions below)
  • 2 1/2 oz sparkling wine​
  1. Combine vodka, lemon and shrub in a shaker with ice; shake for 10 to 15 seconds.
  2. Strain into a chilled stemmed glass.
  3. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a spring of tarragon and a long, spiraled lemon peel.
Notes: Sparkling, pretty, and potent–I can hardly imagine anything better! To make the shrub, combine 2 cups crushed raspberries, 2 cups apple cider vinegar, 4 cups cane sugar, the peel of one lemon and 4 sprigs of tarragon in a sauce pot. Bring ingredients to a simmer and cook until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool before using. Cheers!

Le Fizz Cocktail

"The Le Fizz is light, refreshing and crisp. Typically, I like to put my own twist on a drink recipe and tweak them a bit. But, this one was pretty much perfect the way it was." -- Jelly Toast

Blackberry Ombre Sparkler 

"Technically, these could be called Blackberry Mimosas…but Ombre Sparkler sounds so much more fun.  The ombre effect is super easy to achieve, and the sprig of rosemary is the perfect complement." -- The Cookie Rookie

Sparkling Lemon Drop Martini

The Sidecar

"The Sidecar is another old classic drink. It relies on the acidity to play with the cognac (or in my case, brandy, since I’m not sure I’m ready to invest in cognac)." -- PDXFoodLove
