Grey Goose Winner
The Antipasto Cocktail:
A salad in a sip? This savory, crave-worthy cosmo—made with roasted red pepper-infused Grey Goose vodka—is so delectable, you’ll want to eat it. “We aimed for a complex, salad-inspired cocktail that would take one’s senses outside the norm—just as great fashion does,” says Cocktail Club head spiritist Jasmine Beck.
