THE INSPIRATION: The Moët Diamond is Olivia Culpo’s take on the classic champagne cocktail, paying homage to the elegance and style that is Golden Globes, with a playful twist. Elevating each of the classic champagne cocktail’s ingredients—traditionally champagne, bitters, sugar cube, and sometimes cognac—Culpo selected cherry bitters, to give a hint of fruit; rock candy sticks as a garnish, to add a touch of sweetness; and orange liqueur to balance the sweetness and round out the elegant flavor profile. With a nod to Culpo’s love of red carpet fashion, and the standout diamond looks that have graced carpets in years past such as Elizabeth Taylor’s diamond tiara, The Moët Diamond is the perfect blend of honoring old Hollywood while embracing awards show glam.
