No Hollywood party is ever complete without some bubbles, with that in mind, lauded mixologist Karen Grill created the Moët Ruby Red, the official cocktail of the Golden Globes. The modern take on a French 75 cocktail is a personal homage to one of the most timeless pieces of cinema, The Wizard of Oz. The theatrical masterpiece epitomised Hollywood’s exceptional creativity and captured the whimsy of filmmaking. The champagne and vodka-based concoction’s raspberry, citrus and tarragon shrub give both a tart kick and the ruby red colouring – a nod to the famous ruby slippers. Garnished with tarragon, for the colour of the Emerald City and a long lemon twist for the Yellow Brick Road, this cocktail is luxurious and bright, like the stars who walked The Golden Globes red carpet.

This year, Moët & Chandon also debuted a custom Golden Globes Mini Moët Champagne Caddy, equipped with the same minis that stars like Chrissy Teigen, Naomi Watts, Amber Heard, Heidi Klum, Chris Pratt, and Aziz Ansari have all infamously indulged in while gliding the carpet.
