58 MELINDA KNOWLES Standard cocktail. Here at home, always good champagne. Less calorie guilt — this is why supermodels drink so much! Pimm's Cup in London, a Cosmo in Paris, margarita in Mexico, and Campari and soda in Italy. Holiday party cocktail. Kir Royale. Barware. Waterford Kildare. Cocktail outfit. Giovanni Rossi stilettos. And a slinky sheath like my new Brandon Maxwell in green leopard print. It's 1962. When asked your cocktail order by Don Draper, you reply … "A daiquiri, Don darling." Since it will go so well with my bouffant by Kenneth and my elegant sheath dress by Oleg Cassini. I might also have a long cigarette holder, but I won't inhale. Favorite Dallas lounge. It was the Mansion, until the French Room reopened. Love the European clubiness of both. If you were a cocktail. Campari and soda with a twist of lemon, because I can be sweet or tart — depends on you! JESSICA JESSE Standard cocktail. Vitamin V. Ketel One on the rocks. Why? It's like drinking water. Holiday party cocktail. Crémant de Cramant G.H. Mumm Champagne. Barware. Baccarat Oenologie champagne flutes. How about a Mad Lib? When I drink [COCKTAIL] in [CITY], expect [DESCRIPTION]. When I drink margaritas in Chamonix, expect an avalanche. Favorite Dallas lounge. I don't go to bars in Dallas. Why? Need you ask. Hair of the dog. Aquavit. 'Tis great with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Shaken or stirred. Stirred. It's more elegant. If you were a cocktail. Something simple, like a perfect martini. MUFFIN LEMAK Standard cocktail. Belvedere martini. Shaken, extra dirty, extra olives, on the rocks. Holiday party cocktail. The Lush: 1 ounce vodka, ½ ounce Grand Marnier, 1 ½ teaspoon elderflower syrup, and 2 ounces chilled rosé. Shake with ice. Garnish with champagne grapes. Delicious! Barware. Vintage crystal from my mom. Cocktail outfit. Leopard pants, and an oversized white blouse with fabulous jewelry. COCKTAILS SOCIALITE 'TIS THE SEASON FOR MISCHIEF AND MERRIMENT. SOME MIGHT SAY THE NECESSARY INGREDIENT FOR ACHIEVING THE TWO IS MISTLETOE — BUT WE SAY IT'S A COCKTAIL. WE'RE REVVING UP IN PREPARATION FOR TWO MONTHS OF SWILLING AT SOIRÉES ON EVERY CORNER OF PRESTON HOLLOW AND DOWN THROUGH HIGHLAND PARK. IN THE SPIRIT OF THINGS, BILLY FONG POSES A PROUSTIAN QUESTIONNAIRE ON THE TOPIC OF HOLIDAY TIPPLING. How about a Mad Lib? When I drink [COCKTAIL] in [CITY], expect [DESCRIPTION]. When I drink a Madaket Mystery in Nantucket, expect shaky sailing. It's 1962. When asked your cocktail order by Don Draper, you reply … Not sure I could speak in the presence of Don Draper. Just seeing him would make my evening, but I would love to acquire a taste for an old-fashioned. Favorite Dallas lounge. Café Pacific. Hair of the dog. A big glass of water with Emergen-C and a spin class at John Terlingos. That will sweat it out! Shaken or stirred. Shaken — extra cold with ice slivers. If you were a cocktail. I am a Hot Toddy! MICHELLE NUSSBAUMER Standard cocktail. Casa Dragones tequila with fresh-squeezed lime and a splash of Topo Chico, over the rocks. And I like it in a martini glass. Holiday party cocktail. Eggnog, Courvoisier, and Jack Daniels garnished with a cinnamon stick over ice. Or, champagne squeezed with lemon and a splash of Amaretto over ice, garnished with a basil leaf. Barware. Vintage Baccarat that I have been collecting for years, mixed with pressed- glass goblets in ruby red or turquoise. Cocktail outfit. Anything involving a turban and masses of my rock-candy bracelets. Favorite Dallas lounge. The back room at Dunston's (super old school). The waitress knows what I drink and brings it to my table by the time I sit down. What else can a girl ask for. How about a Mad Lib? When I drink [COCKTAIL] in [CITY], expect [DESCRIPTION]. When I drink margaritas in Istanbul, expect whirling dervish and mariachis on call. Hair of the dog. Cielo Rojo. I don't ever require this personally because I am actually not a big drinker, but it is what I recommend to friends who have been The Hemingway Bar at the Ritz Paris MINDY BYRD
