Ask your server who sat in your chair the next time you dine at ’21’ Club and you may be surprised to find out it was Kate Winslet, Kim Cattrall, Michael Kors, or even Jackie O. Inspired by the myriad of Hollywood stars and fashion icons that frequent ’21’ Club, the Red Carpet cocktail is sure to make you feel like fashion royalty. This Fashion Week libation features Aperol, Taylor Tawny Port, Plymouth Gin, Riesling and a squeeze of fresh lemon strained into a champagne flute and topped with Prosecco.

Much like the eyeshadow on the models who strut the catwalks of Fashion Week, this cocktail features a smokiness that sets it a part from the rest. Tessa’s Smoky Eyes cocktail features Byrrh Grand Quinquina, mixed with grapefruit juice and Mezcal Joven, which gives this elixir its alluring smoky flavor.
