The 75th anniversary take place this weekend, and here's a cocktail to celebrate.
The Moët 75, created by Jamie Chung, is a riff on a , made with tequila, blood orange juice, and honey. It's anchored by Moët & Chandon, which in 2017 celebrates 27 years as the official champagne of the Golden Globes. The champagne maker will serve 1,500 Moët Impérial minis on the red carpet, 125 cases of Moët & Chandon 2006 Grand Vintage Brut and on the tables during the awards ceremony, and 500 Moët cocktails at the bars.
