For more than a quarter of a century, Moët & Chandon has been the official champagne of the Golden Globes. From the mini bottles that people adore to the gigantic magnums that take two people to pour, the classic champagne is always flowing during the festivities.

In recent years, Moët & Chandon has created a celebratory cocktail. Last year it was the Moët Belle. This year’s cocktail, created by acclaimed fashion designer LaQuan Smith, is a vision in color and taste.

Many photographers know the term golden hour. It is the time when the light is perfect and everything is set aglow. It is that perfect moment when everything and everyone just seems to sparkle.

This Golden Globes cocktail sparkles and shines in various ways. The flavors combine bright, tart grapefruit with sweetness of the pineapple juice. With the bubbles offering the effervescence, it is the perfect toast for before, during and after the event.

Here’s how to make The Moët Golden Hour.
