GREY GOOSE vodka unveils its bespoke collection of cocktails designed especially for the GREY GOOSE Winter Ball to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation, in collaboration with this year’s character partners Emeli Sandé, Labrinth, Gareth Pugh, Ellen von Unwerth and Karim Rashid.
The internationally acclaimed and star studded event, now in its sixth year, will be taking place at Battersea Power Station on Saturday 10 November, with a theme of 1950’s Cote D’Azur. Guests will be transported from a chilly autumn evening in London to a scene reminiscent of the Riviera in its heyday, where poolside glamour, palm trees and pastel colour schemes abound.
Guests will be invited to sip bespoke cocktails created by each of the evening’s incredible partners. GREY GOOSE ambassador Joe McCanta has worked with each of them to construct a cocktail that either perfectly encapsulates their individual character and style, or that pays homage to the evening’s theme.
Labrinth and Emeli Sandé will treat guests to a dazzling musical performance following a spectacular Mediterranean dinner, courtesy of The Connaught’s two Michelinstarred Head Chef Hélène Darroze.
Using pioneering techniques in mixology, some of the cocktails will invoke guests’ senses to immerse them completely in their surroundings.
