Monday, July 20, will mark the 40th anniversary of astronaut Neil Armstrong’s historic walk on the moon.
The publicity mill at Grand Marnier is making sure everyone remembers its liqueur was part of the first cocktail Armstrong and his crew enjoyed upon their return to Earth in 1969.
The cocktail, called the “Moonwalk,” was created by Joe Gilmore, who was the head barman at the Savoy Hotel in London. Here is the recipe:
1 part Grand Marnier
1 part fresh grapefruit juice
2 dashes rosewater
Moët & Chandon Champagne
Shake ingredients well and strain into a wine glass. Top off with Moët & Chandon.
