Grey Goose, the world’s favourite luxury vodka partnered with BAFTA and private members’ club, Soho House to host the film world’s elite at the official after party for this year’s Orange British Academy Film Awards – the “BAFTAs”. Some of the well known names in British cinema gathered in London for the awards ceremony and, for the second year, Grey Goose vodka was chosen as the spirit for the official after party.

Synonymous with film, Grey Goose vodka and Soho House continued their successful partnership having hosted high-profile movie-world parties in West Hollywood and during the film festivals in Cannes and Toronto. In honour of the occasion, global ambassador for Grey Goose vodka, Dimi Lezinska, created a collection of delicious cocktails, which were enjoyed by the exclusive guest list attending the official awards after party.

One of the stars of the night, the L’Orange BAFTA is a toast to the world’s best in film. The tangy citrus flavours of Grey Goose L’Orange and orange curaçao, are married with raspberry syrup to create a bright, fresh cocktail garnished appropriately with a shining citrus star.

1 ½ parts Grey Goose L’Orange
part orange curaçao
½ part raspberry syrup
½ part freshly squeezed lemon juice
• Fill a shaker with ice
• Add all the ingredients
• Shake well and strain into a chilled coupette or martini cocktail glass
• Garnish with orange zest in the shape of a star

The Orange British Academy Film Awards are a celebration of film from around the world. As a salute to the filmmakers who bring the stories to life and capture our imagination Dimi has created a cocktail of international flavour. Exotic Yuzu juice from East Asia is partnered with the tart flavours of rhubarb bitters and the tang of lemon juice. Garnished with a sprig of aromatic mint and topped with soda water, this refreshing, long drink is a perfect celebratory cocktail.

Served in an elegant flute garnished with a fresh lemon twist this cocktail is the perfect partner for any leading lady.
