Last week, I was invited to a very chic picnic with Grey Goose Vodka. Inspired by the French Riviera, we sipped on classic vodka martinis (with a twist of lemon) and enjoyed fresh-shucked oysters in the garden at the Field & Stream Club in Dorval. The cocktail was followed by a traditional French picnic on blue and white blankets elegantly spread on the lawn next to the magnificent Saint-Lawrence River. Following the picnic, we tried two other cocktails during the evening which you can make at home (you’ll find the links to the recipes below), or you can head to Sea Salt & Ceviche in Old Montreal to their Grey Goose terrace where they’ll be serving these cocktails all summer long!

For the past three years, I’ve been attending the Grey Goose summer launch event and this year was no exception. It’s an event I wouldn’t want to miss! This year’s #SunsetSoirée was my favourite Grey Goose event so far! Below are a few photos to show you why.
French men and French cars, oh la la! That view!My favourite: a classic martini with a classy lady.Oysters, of course!And what a spread!
There was even an artist who was drawing everyone’s portraits on the fly. Mine turned out pretty good! I wish I hadn’t forgotten it in my Uber on the way home!Photo: JF GalipeauPhoto : Lolitta Dandoy
