GREY GOOSE Cherry Noir [the newest flavor from GREY GOOSE and the first flavor to be released from the brand since 2007] was served as one of the specialty cocktails. GREY GOOSE Cherry Noir has an aroma of fresh cherries and sweet red fruits. Its dark fruit flavors and layers of spice are followed by a long, warm, lingering finish.

Check out the drink recipe below:

Grey Goose Cherry Noir


GREY GOOSE® Cherry Noir Black Cherry Cola


GREY GOOSE® Cherry Noir 1 ½ Parts

Cola 3 ½ Parts

Grenadine ½ Part


1. Fill glass slightly above rim with cubed ice.

2. Pour ingredients in order listed to 1/2 inch from top of glass and stir.

3. Add soda straw and garnish with a cherry.

Give the cocktail a slight stir with the straw prior to serving to mix the ingredients, but do so gently, so as not to release all the carbonation.
