Make This Drink: Official Cocktail of The Emmy Awards
The Emmy (Lindsay William-Ross/LAist)
Whether you're hosting a gathering or drinking alone (we won't judge) for tomorrow evening's live Emmy telecast, you can drink exactly what the attendees will be sipping at the Governor's Ball after the last statuette is handed out.
The official Emmy cocktail is a martini that uses Grey Goose L'Orange, and this year is all about peaches, which you're probably picking up by the pound at your favorite farmers' market these days, since they are in peak season and beautifully sweet and juicy.
So how do you make this celebratory summer cocktail?
2 parts GREY GOOSE® L’Orange Flavored Vodka
1 part peach brandy
1 part fresh lime juice
2 dashes peach bitters
½ part simple syrup
1 peach slice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all ingredients. Shake well until the outside of the shaker is frosted and beaded with sweat. Strain into martini cocktail glass and garnish with peach slice.
