Did you all know that Grey Goose has a new flavor? Well they do and they made their way to Houston last week and rolled out the red carpet for a launch party for the latest flavor, Le Melon. Hosted by UrbanDaddy, the party was part of a national 10-city “Fruit of Kings” event series to celebrate the new flavor by toasting modern day “kings” who are shaking things up.
So what’s the story behind the new melon flavor? Well, the inspiration for the collaboration comes from the rich and intriguing history of the Cavaillon melon, selected by Grey Goose creator Maitre de Chai (Cellar Master) Francois Thibault to craft the exceptional new expression – Grey Goose Le Melon. The prized essence of the ripe, juicy Cavaillon melons from Provence, France, was said to be relished and sought after by French Kings, nobility and artists. Legend has it that kings traded gold for exclusive access to this treasured fruit.
Since you all missed the party that included a variety of Le Melon cocktails, here’s a delicious cocktail recipe featuring the new flavor. Cheers and enjoy!
