Culpo was inspired by the classic champagne cocktail, which traditionally contains ingredients like champagne, bitters, sugar cube, and sometimes cognac, when creating The Moët Diamond. However, she put a twist on the ingredients in order to pay homage to the elegance and style of the Golden Globes. “Culpo selected cherry bitters, to give a hint of fruit; rock candy sticks as a garnish, to add a touch of sweetness; and orange liqueur to balance the sweetness and round out the elegant flavor profile,” according to a press release.
