Official Melbourne Cup 2017 Cocktail Recipe

Mix Yourself the Official Sip of the Melbourne Cup

You may not be one of the lucky people mingling in The Birdcage marquee this Melbourne Cup, but you can still sip on what they'll be drinking! Maison Mumm is the official champagne sponsor of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, and this year its Cup cocktail is the Le Mistral. Inspired by the sea, it's a winning blend of gin, liqueurs, grapefruit juice, the newly released Mumm Grand Cordon Rosé and (for a touch of theatre) dry ice.

So pop on a fascinator and roll out your bar cart, it's cocktail hour.
