Atlanta’s movers and shakers had the opportunity to #FlyBeyond last week thanks to UrbanDaddy and Grey Goose Le Melon’s “Fruit Of Kings” event. I had the opportunity to attend the exclusive fete, which was held last Tuesday (July 29) at Whiskey Blue in the W Buckhead, and I was really excited to finally have the opportunity to try the new Grey Goose Le Melon. Created using the Cavaillon melon, Grey Goose Le Melon was used in all four of the cocktails featured at “Fruit Of Kings.” I’ve listed all four below and I’ve also gone ahead and included their ingredients in case you want to mix them up at home.
Melon Royal – Grey Goose Le Melon and lemon-lime soda.
Fizz – Grey Goose Le Melon, Manzanilla Sherry, orgeat, fresh lemon, and soda.
Southern Sip – Grey Goose Le Melon, fresh grapefruit juice, ginger beer, Benedictine, melon ball and sage.
I have to say that I was really surprised at the addition of ginger beer to two of the Grey Goose Le Melon cocktails. I’m still on the fence about the “Melon Mule,” but the “Southern Sip” was a much smoother sip (pun intended). And as a big fan of Grey Goose’s “Le Fizz” cocktails, my hands down favorite from the “Fruit Of Kings” event was the “Fizz” cocktail. Sweet, fizzy, boozy goodness! My kind of party.
In addition to a variety of Grey Goose Le Melon cocktails, guests were also treated to tunes from DJ Don Cannon and had the opportunity to sample a handful of melon-inspired bites. Speaking of which, I’ve clearly been sleeping on the delicious combination that is melon and smoked salmon. Delish!
