Like Gilt before it, the Empire Hotel is taking advantage of its recent (and frequent) Gossip Girl name-drops by introducing show-themed drinks to its cocktail menu, created by Somer Perez. Starting tonight, sip the “Jenny’s Tartlet” (Montecristo white rum, mint, ruby-red grapefruit, and a lollipop: “Sweet yet pushy, she packs a zingy punch. She’ll take the limelight at any cost … Kids these days”); the “I’m Chuck Bass” (Dewar’s scotch, red apple, ginger bites, and apple cider); or the intriguing but terrifying “XOXO” with “all secret ingredients.” Get drunk and act irresponsibly, like all your favorite Gossip Girl characters, for only $15 a drink.
