Grey Goose® Le Grand Fizz Cocktail Recipe + Win a Grey Goose® Summer Soirée Hamper

You know I love my picnics and apéritifs in summertime so when GREY GOOSE® asked me to come up with my ideal picnic panier (basket) to enjoy with their new signature cocktail Le Grand Fizz, I naturally said 'Oui'. You can find my top tips for a summer soirée in the August edition of the Irish Tatler and today I'm also sharing the recipe here as well as hosting a giveaway.

GREY GOOSE® uses only the best French raw ingredients, combining soft winter wheat grown on farms in the Picardie Region and pristine water from Gensac-La-Pallue in the Cognac region. Le Grand Fizz is a delicious blend of GREY GOOSE® vodka, St-Germain elderflower liqueur, soda water and fresh lime.  Served in a large wine glass with lots of ice cubes le Grand Fizz is an effortless and elegant drink at the same time, très French!

You will be able to enjoy Le Grand Fizz cocktail in a few leading bars in Ireland on your night outs but the good thing is that it's also really easy to make at home. So here is the recipe for this ultimate summer cocktail:

GREY GOOSE® Le Grand Fizz Recipe

35ml GREY GOOSE® Vodka
15ml ST-GERMAIN® elderflower liqueur
70ml soda water
Squeeze of 2 lime wedges

Build ice into an oversized cabernet wine glass.  Add GREY GOOSE® Vodka and freshly squeezed lime juice.  Top with ST-GERMAIN elderflower liqueur and chilled soda water.  
Garnish with two lime wedges and a GREY GOOSE stirrer.

For added aromatics, twist the zest of the squeezed lime wedge over the top of the drink.

*** Drink responsibly***
