Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival 2012

With MBFF just 10 days away and with so much happening on the Brisbane fashion scene at the moment, I thought I had better come out of retirement and fill you in on whats going on.

First Off

CÎROC Vodka is sponsoring some of the events this year and will be serving up The CÎROC Champagne Cosmo, made especially by the CÎROC mixology team for MBFF. You can get your hands on these delicious cocktails at the Wintergarden Runway Lounge amongst other events. So to get you in the mood for a full week of fashion in Brisbane check out the recipe below!




-30ml CÎROC

-10ml Grand Marnier

-10ml lime juice

-40ml cranberry juice

-Sparkling wine to top


Shake first four ingredients with ice and strain into a flute.

Garnish the glass with a lemon or orange zest twist.

Note: use a lemon garnish if the sparkling wine is quite sweet.
