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...


GREY GOOSE La Poire Golden Harvest


  • 1 ½ oz Grey Goose La Poire
  • ½ oz St Germain
  • 1 oz of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly shucked corn or leftover roasted corn
  • ½ oz of agave nectar
  • Garnish:  Grated nutmeg and chipotle chili powder
  • Glassware:  Martini

*In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, add corn and syrup.  Muddle thoroughly.  Add ice, La Poire, St Germain, and lemon juice - shake vigorously.  Strain into martini glass.  Grate nutmeg over top and sprinkle with chili powder.


GREY GOOSE L’Orange Autumn Sage (this was my personal favorite of the two cocktails)


  • 1 ¼ oz Grey Goose L’ Orange
  • ½ oz green chartreuse
  • 2 1-inch pieces of fennel, diced small
  • 3 sage leaves
  • ¾ oz agave nectar
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 2 ounces of seltzer
  • Garnish:  Fennel fronds
  • Glassware:  Highball or large rocks

*In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, add:  fennel, sage and syrup.  Muddle thoroughly.  Add ice, L’ Orange, Chartreuse, and lemon juice - shake vigorously.  Strain into glass filled with ice.  Top with seltzer and garnish.


Until we drink again,

The Lunch Belle
