Moet and Ice meet the Harbor

A host of celebrities and Lunch Magazine’s intrepid champagne writer attended the launch of Moet Ice Imperial on Sydney Harbour recently.

The preferred drink of the cool set on hot summer days is back. At twilight, Moët & Chandon officially launched Moët Ice Impérial for the summer season with an intimate group onboard a luxurious cruiser on Sydney Harbour.

The 50 guests dressed in white (lace was popular) enjoyed the breathtaking views of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. With the sun setting on bright blue skies, guests cruised along the coastline spotting the homes of the rich and famous toasting them with Moët Ice in hand.

The cruiser was dressed in white, which of course included the infamous Moët white champagne goblets.

Different from all other Champagnes, Moët Ice must be served with a few large ice cubes and then garnished with either lychees, strawberries or raspberries for a fruity sweet hit or mint and cucumber for the more savory.

A fabulous canapé menu, which was created by Pete Evans and Sarah French, included san choy bau, tiny gourmet chicken sandwiches and bite size Caesar salad cups.

Hip DJ Jack Sutherland kept the tunes flowing with some of his best mixes, while the do-it-yourself garnish station was busy with guests creating their own mixes in their goblet. Mint & cucumber was the favourite with the lads while the glamorous girls (only in Sydney do they wear towering heels on board) preferred as many berries as possible.
