Diageo helps AIDS group's Oscar party
A year-long event partnership between Diageo and the Elton John AIDS Foundation has resulted in a trio of specialty cocktails created for the foundation's gala dinner and Academy Awards viewing party set for the Pacific Design Center in Hollywood this Sunday.
Diageo's Ciroc Ultra Premium Vodka was used to create the "Ciroc Chic" (right) and "Simply Scrumptious" drinks to be served at the custom designed Ciroc Ice Bar. The first is vodka mixed with pomegranate and pineapple juices, served in a chilled martini glass garnished with a lemon twist. The second is a mix of vodka, lemon juice, pear nectar and Cointreau, garnished with cinnamon.
Godiva will feature the "Godiva Carameltini," a blend of Godiva Caramel Milk Chocolate Liqueur and vodka, served in a chilled martini glass with a caramel swirl.
The Elton John AIDS Foundation, which the singer/composer established in 1992, focuses on the support of community-based prevention education programs, harm reduction programs, and direct services to those living with HIV/AIDS. The organization's outreach efforts include physical and mental health services, HIV testing and counseling, food distribution, assisted living services, social services and volunteer recruitment and support.
