You guys came through for the homeboy!
Local mixologist Adam Seger's quest to serve his signature cocktail at the Academy Awards is now a reality.
Moet & Chandon just announced the winner:
"The legendary Champagne House congratulates Chicago native Adam Seger, whose Moet Red Carpet Glamour cocktail dazzled a panel of expert judges and the social media community alike. The Moet Red Carpet Glamour cocktail – selected for its originality, taste and popularity – will be brought to life at the 2012 Governors Ball, the after-party of the 84th Academy Awards."
Here's the recipe for the cocktail, just in case you want to make it at home during your own Oscar party celebration:
Fill a chilled Champagne flute halfway with ice. Stir one ounce each Perfect Puree Yuzu Luxe Sour Mix (or fresh juice sour mix) and Hum with fresh ice. Strain into flute and top with Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut Reserve. Garnish with a single rose petal.
Continually refresh as you wish with Moët & Chandon Imperial, as the Champagne will float on top of the HUM Sour, but its effervescence will deliver HUM's heady cardamom and kaffir lime notes.
Congrats, Adam! Do you need an assistant?!
