Does it get better than great drinks at a great party for a great cause? Jonathan Harris, head mixologist at the Gibson, is playing host to an intimate soiree on the second floor of the speak-easy-like cocktail lounge to benefit Fashion Fights Poverty. DJ Soul Call Paul will spin retro funk and soul, and Harris will whip up four fashion-inspired drinks. One selection: The Green Gown, a mix of Danish akvavit, Green Chartreuse, Fernet Branca, dry vermouth and a ginger extract served in a glass rinsed with single-malt scotch. The cocktail takes its color from the Chartreuse, Harris explains, and is designed to look like "a shimmery green gown."
