Joe McCanta makes Une Journée à la Plage


Grey Goose brand ambassador Joe McCanta shows how to make Une Journée à la Plage, a cocktail inspired by singer-songwriter Labrinth and one of a collection of cocktails designed for the Grey Goose Winter Ball on November 10, 2012, to benefit the Elton John Aids Foundation.

Une Journée à la Plage – meaning “a day at the beach” – is said to contain all the ingredients of an idyllic summer’s day drink, including beachy notes of banana, coconut, pineapple and lime:

35ml Grey Goose vodka
10ml Gabriel Boudier Crème de Bananes
15ml Mahina Coco Clément coconut rum
10ml Fresh lime juice
100ml Fresh pineapple juice

Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish with a pineapple leaf and a seaside-scented umbrella.
