It's been 18 years since Cecily von Ziegesar first introduced us to the elite world of Upper East Side teens, Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen, and almost 8 years since the last episode of the television series inspired by the novels. But the cultural obsession with everything Gossip Girl is still going strong. Seriously, there was even a reference to it in everyone's new favorite Netflix binge Emily in Paris!
With an updated series in the works for HBO Max and plenty of time to re-watch the OG show from the beginning, we couldn't think of a more appropriate way to pay tribute to the wild child shenanigans of Blair, Serena, and the bunch than with a few Gossip Girl inspired cocktails. Luckily, there's a new book for that.
XOXO, A Cocktail Book is your official unofficial guide to shaking up sips worthy of your favorite characters. The fancy hardcover features fabulous riffs of 100 classic cocktails, all with fun nods to the series' most memorable moments. 'Tis the perfect excuse to break out the bar cart and invite your friends over for the ultimate throwback watch party.
