The Golden Globe nominations came out last week, and nearly as important as the nominees is the debut of the official cocktail of the awards ceremony.
The Moët Diamond, created by Olivia Culpo, is a riff on a classic champagne cocktail, made with cherry bitters, orange liqueur, and rock candy. It's anchored by Moët & Chandon, which in 2017 celebrates 26 years as the official champagne of the Golden Globes.
Whether you choose the cocktail for your viewing party or keep it simple and stick to champagne, having a supply of libations like these on hand is guaranteed to earn you points with even the pickiest of party guests.

1 rock candy stick
