2012 Food & Wine France: Eiffel Sour Cosmo Slush

One of France’s items at Food & Wine Festival got a bit of an update this year. Since I’ve enjoyed the Parisian Cosmo Slush, a combination of  Ciroc Vodka, Grand Marnier and Cranberry Juice, I knew I would love the Grey Goose Cherry Noir Vodka in place of the Ciroc.

The $9.75 price tag is a bit, but considering the quality of alcohol used, it’s not unexpected. There was also a generous amount of alcohol in the batch I enjoyed, too. They cherry flavor was also noticeable, which made me happy, and overall the beverage was nicely tart.

Previous years versions came served in a martini glass, which also seems to have been the case earlier in the festival. Mine came in a cup, instead. I’m not complaining, because I’m fairly certain there was more beverage for my buck this way!

Since I didn’t get to try this drink until the final weekend of the festival, I’ll have to break out my blender to mix it up at home! What did you think of the Eiffel Sour Cosmo Slush? How do you think it compared to the version with Ciroc from last year?

  1. I wish mine had come in a normal cup! Those cheesy plastic martini glasses with the detachable bases are inconvenient and top-heavy. I enjoyed the Eiffel Sour Cosmo Slush enough this year that I ordered more than one. I definitely think the Grey Goose Cherry Noir was an improvement over the Ciroc. I too might want to make these at home!

  2. Yes, those glasses are very clumsy! I’m surprised they don’t just do the cups like the other drinks. I imagine they would be a lot less expensive.
