In celebration of The Great Gatsby film's upcoming premiere, mixology guru Jim Meehan teamed with Moët & Chandon to craft this bubbly blend — The Moët Imperial Gatsby. A twist on the classic Champagne Cocktail (a roaring-twenties favorite), this drink adds green chartreuse and a twist of lime in reference to the characters' preferred spirit, and that ever-present green light, illuminating their garden parties.
The drink is available exclusively at The Plaza hotel — but we've got the recipe right here. Step up your cocktail hour with this simple-chic quaff, and daydream of all the summer parties to come.
5 oz Moët Imperial
1 sugar cube soaked in .25 oz Green Chartreuse
One spiral lime twist
Drop pre-soaked sugar cube into a champagne flute or wine glass. Fill to the top with chilled champagne. Garnish with the lime spiral twist, and serve.
