If Game of ThronesRed Wedding episode is any indication of what’s to come on Sunday’s season 3 finale, a drink may be in order.

The mixologists at Grey Goose came up with the perfect libation to entertain guests at a viewing party – or dull the pain of another season ending.”As a fan of the show, I was inspired by the strength and beauty of Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys Targaryen and her striking white hair,” Grey Goose brand ambassador, Guillaume Jubien, tells PEOPLE. “The cocktail needed to contain delicate flavors yet maintain character. A cocktail like this really takes your party to the next level.”Plus, who doesn’t love her dragons?

Dragon Whisper Cocktail

1½ oz. pear-flavored vodka (the recipe suggests La Poire)
½ oz. pear nectar
½ oz. lychee puree
½ oz. lemon juice
¾ oz. egg white, pasteurized
½ oz. maple syrup
1 tsp. fresh ginger juice
1 pinch of ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients into a shaker, shake and strain! Then brace yourself …

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
