A party isn't really a party without a good cocktail, and when the bash in question is the Golden Globes, the drink has to be exceptionally great. The awards show has enlisted the help of model and foodie Elettra Wiedemann to create a duo of signature cocktails using the awards show's official champagne, Moët & Chandon.
Widemann's blog, The Impatient Foodie, is all about recipes that are easy to make at home. Accordingly, she has created two versions of each cocktail: one that will be served at the Globes this Sunday, and a simpler, "impatient" version for you to make at home. Read on for all four delightful cocktails:
