Grey Goose creates festive food and cocktail pairing kit

by Owen Bellwood

Bacardi-owned vodka brand Grey Goose has partnered with retailer Cocktail Courier and meal delivery service Cooked to create an at-home cocktail and food pairing kit.

Budding chefs in the US can order the Holiday Dinner by Grey Goose through Cocktail Courier, which will deliver everything needed to create a festive feast with accompanying cocktails. Available for up to eight people, the kit includes a festive dinner prepared by James Beard Award-winning chef Jonathan Waxman – featuring roast chicken, crispy potatoes, salsa verde and roasted Japanese turnips and multi-coloured carrots. Priced at US$199.99, the kit also features the ingredients needed to make the Grey Goose Winter Star cocktail, including a bottle of Grey Goose Vodka, Bittered Sling Clingstone Peach Bitters, rosemary syrup, tonic water and star anise. From 11 November until New Year’s Eve (31 December), Grey Goose will donate US$20 from the sale of each kit to US-based charity Meals on Wheels America to support its mission to end hunger in America. Earlier this year, SB spoke with bartenders and chefs around the world to find out more about the latest trend to hit top-end restaurants – the marriage of gastronomy and cocktails.
