Designer drink, anyone? In honor of New York Fashion Week, Bergdorf Goodman asked some of the most recognizable names in the American fashion industry—including Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera’s Wes Gordon, Sergio Hudson, and Christopher John Rogers—to curate a list of custom cocktails.
With help of the expert mixologists at Temple Bar, they delivered. This September, you can sip on Rogers’s “The CJR” margarita (mezcal, dry vermouth, lemongrass, and lime) as well as the Hudson’s The Hudson Chiller (tequila, amaro, cucumber, strawberry, and lemon) at BG restaurant and Goodman’s Bar.
For those still in a summer mindset, the “Kors Krush” will hit the spot with its peach and orange blossom vodka, lemon juice, and basil. “The basil leaves muddled with the peach and orange vodka instantly transports you to a sunset drink with an incredible ocean view, no matter where you are,” Kors says.
