The 3rd season of Gossip Girl has been quite a hit with GG followers, and if you’ve paid close attention, you would have noticed that New York’s Empire Hotel has become of the lead characters this season. After it was bought by bad boy Chuck Bass, the hotel has made various appearances on TV and has encompassed lots, and lots of TV drama.
Since it’s making appearances on TV, the real life property believes it should embrace the connection by debuting “Gossip Girl cocktails.”
Created by the Empire’s cocktail consultant Somer Perez, there are going to be drinks for each Gossip Girl character. You can find them being served in the hotel’s Lobby Bar, each costing $15. There’s even an “XOXO” cocktail, with secret ingredients they’ll never tell (Inside joke for Gossip Girl fans). Here’s a list of their Gossip-worthy drinks:
