Grey Goose has unveiled  this year’s Grey Goose Film Awards Season Cocktail Collection in celebration of those who defy expectations to achieve extraordinary films each year. 

This year, Grey Goose has collaborated with five of London’s leading bartenders from some of the world’s most respected bars to create a collection of cocktail serves.

The five bartenders and venues features are:

¥          Xavier Landais, Bar Director: Sexy Fish

¥          Tom Kerr, Global Bars Manager: Cafe Monico, Soho House & Co

¥          Erik Lorincz, Head Bartender: American Bar, Savoy Hotel

¥          Andy Shannon, Head Bartender: London Edition Hotel

¥          Tony Pescatori, Head Bartender: Nightjar

The collection will be available for guests to enjoy at The Grey Goose Fifth Floor Bar at Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, and each of the cocktails will be available to try at the bartenders' respective bars throughout the month of February.

Alternatively, you can try making the cocktails yourself at home with the recipes below. We tried a selection of the cocktails, and can recommend the signature Grey Goose Le Fizz– a refreshing drink perfect for celebrating – or the Bear Necessities – a sweet and fragrant cocktail which works perfectly as an after dinner tipple :
