Santa Anita – Over the weekend GREY GOOSE was the exclusive spirit at the series of Breeders’ Cup high-profile celebrity events, which kicked off the 29th Annual Breeders’ Cup World Championships. GREY GOOSE, the official Cup sponsor, brought the culinary facet to the races with “Taste of the World,” an event that celebrated fine fare and artisanal cocktails from 15 international cuisines.
Hosted by celebrity chef Bobby Flay and Food Network’s chef Marcela Valladolid, GREY GOOSE mixologists teamed with acclaimed chefs, including the likes of Michael Voltaggio of LA-based Ink restaurant and winner of Top Chef (season six) and Canada’s Susur Lee of Iron Chef.
Only the finest and freshest ingredients were offered — straight from the farm to the table. Masterful cocktails served at Taste of the World included “Miss Figgy,” made up of GREY GOOSE® L’Orange Vodka, freshly muddled figs, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and a splash of 43 liqueur.
The specialty cocktails listed below were served at all the Breeders’ Cup celebrity hospitality suites and accompanying events, which include Jocktails, the Breeders’ Cup Celebrity Invitational, the Mayor’s Masquerade, Breeders’ Cup Winners Circle Party, Taste of the World and Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
