Whether you’re hosting a game-watching party for an international sporting match or just looking to mix things up a little, these DIY cocktails from around the world are real winners. Let your taste buds take a trip with cocktails inspired by ingredients from different countries.
Asia, the largest of the world’s continents, obviously gives us a lot of ground to cover. There are plenty of cocktails to explore that feature Asian ingredients, like the Asian Summer Cocktail with ground ginger and sesame oil or the Wandering Poet Cocktail, featuring the flavors of lychee and sake.
When the U.S. was in the depths of prohibition, cocktails were flourishing in Europe. An early version of the Bloody Mary Cocktail is rumored to have been created in Paris. The bartender Fernand “Pete” Petiot would mix vodka (a relatively unknown Russian spirit at the time) with tomato juice for American expats.
For North America, we can take a trip to Cape Cod, the quaint village in Massachusetts. Elevate the taste of the town’s namesake drink with some GREY GOOSE® in our Cape Fizz Cocktail. If you want a red, white, and blue drink to toast to the USA, try the Sparkler Spritz. For their southern neighbors in Mexico, try the L'Orange Tommy's Vodka Margarita or if you head north to Canada, the Fireside, featuring maple syrup.
In Brazil, the national drink is the caipirinha, the green-hued cocktail with a sweet and tangy flavor. It’s made with cachaça — a fruity, clear spirit made from fermented sugarcane juice. But we like our versatile take on it, the Caipiroska, which uses Grey Goose Vodka instead.
Rooibos, which means "red bush” in Afrikaans, is a South African plant that is used to make an herbal tea. We combine its sweet and slightly nutty taste with fruity flavors in our Punch on Lock Cocktail.
There’s one classic cocktail that’s practically everywhere down under — the Espresso Martini Cocktail. The winning combination of coffee and vodka makes it a hit with Aussies everywhere.
Not much going on here but ice. Might we suggest enjoying the sophisticated taste of Grey Goose on the Rocks?
Not available in stores, this kit includes the ready-to-serve GREY GOOSE® Classic Martini Cocktail in a Bottle, plus two martini cocktail glasses.
