Thirsty Reporter: The Official Golden Globes 75th Anniversary Cocktail
Fashion influencer and actress Jamie Chung created the bubbly drink that will be served during the Jan. 7 awards ceremony.
Moët & Chandon — the official champagne of the Golden Globes for more than 25 years — on Thursday revealed the official cocktail of the upcoming ceremony during a menu-unveiling event in Los Angeles. The Moët 75 was created by actress and fashion influencer Jamie Chung, who said she was honored to be asked to create the drink using one of Moët’s iconic champagnes, Moët & Chandon Impérial.
The cocktail will be served to star attendees — including nominees like Emma Stone, Mary J. Blige and Armie Hammer — during the big event at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday, Jan. 7. Guests will be treated not only to the signature cocktail, but staff will be serving 1,500 Moët Impérial minis on the red carpet, using 125 cases of Moët & Chandon 2006 Grand Vintage Brut and Moët Impérial Rosé Magnums on the tables during the awards ceremony and will have 500 Moët cocktails served at the bars.
"It is such a happy time of year because it’s the first award show to kick off the new year and it’s a reunion of sorts for actors," Chung gushes over her excitement about going to the show for the first time. "I’ve never attended the actual ceremony, so I’m excited but a little terrified, as I know it’s an intimate setting. But I’m thrilled!"
The famed champagne brand will once again host its popular philanthropic initiative, “Toast for a Cause,” as Golden Globe nominees will be invited to raise a toast with the mini bottles in support of their favorite charities on the red carpet. For each toast raised, Moët & Chandon donates $1,000 to the chosen charity in the nominee’s name.
