I started off my long weekend early yesterday when I attended a mixology session with Grey Goose global brand ambassador Dimitri Lezinska, one half of the duo in the Cocktail Kings series that aired on Discovery Travel & Living some years back.
Witty, charming and sexy, Dimitri talked us through some facts and basics about mixing cocktails, sharing that the flavours should be delicate and not overwhelm the palate. He said it best when he said, “It’s not about drinking more, it’s about drinking better.“
I was a little heavy handed with the vodka (no surprise, no accident) so when it came to drinking it, I started feeling the effects pretty quickly! Not a good idea since I was due for two work meetings after! It was good fun, ha haa!
At a seperate event yesterday titled Perfect Moments Framed in Time, Grey Goose introduced three special cocktails inspired by three local personalities Emma Yong, Daniel Boey and Wee Teng Ten, heralding the start of a series of unique cocktails concocted with leading men and women in mind.
The celebration took place at ONE°15 Marina Club as a prelude to Boat Asia 2010, of which Grey Goose is a sponsor. Returning for a second year, the annual event showcases luxurious sailing yachts, powerboats and super yachts.
It was a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Here are photos to show for it!
