Rubbing elbows & snagging recipes at the Soho House, courtesy of Grey Goose

Last night, my friend, Devon, and I had the pleasure of attending an invite-only, Grey Goose Vodka-sponsored "Cocktails & Canapes" event at the exclusive Soho House

The fun began in Chef Paul's kitchen, as he demonstrated how to make the following holiday party-appropriate hors d'oeuvres:

  • Red Grapes with Goat Cheese & Pistachio
  • Short Rib Empanadas with Hot Mustard Horseradish
  • Bacon-wrapped Scallops
  • Smoked Salmon Bites with Dill Creme Fraiche

Between nibbles, we were served two fabulous Grey Goose-based cocktails - both of which I snagged recipes for!  Enjoy...
