It’s easy to turn yourself into a Gossip Girl with the list of Upper East Side-themed martinis from the Lobby Bar at NYC’s Empire Hotel. On the show, Chuck Bass rules the bar, but in real life, anyone can walk into the Empire Hotel and order cocktails inspired by Blair, Serena, and Vanessa.  You can even order a cocktail devoted to digital BFF,!

Somer Perez, the mastermind mixologist behind the list of delicious drinks gave us the secret behind her concoctions.  “They are inspired by the characters’ accessories, personalities, and character studies,” Somer dished. The list of GG cocktails include the “B” the “S” and the ever-so-sexy “I’m Chuck Bass.” But our favorite was the “Eau de Vanessa,” which Somer describes as “light and natural … something about it keeps you coming back for more.” — Corynne Steindler and Chloe Melas
