Here’s looking at you!

Tom Sandoval, cast member of Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules and bartender at Lisa Vanderpump‘s Sur restaurant in West Hollywood, has designed an eyeball-inspired cocktail just in time for Halloween.

To create the optical illusion: Run thin streaks of raspberry sauce on the inside of a martini glass to look like bloodshot veins and drop a raspberry-stuffed lychee inside to resemble an eyeball. The fruit will bob and swirl around in the cocktail, which is oddly freaky and delicious-looking at the same time.

Shake up a batch for your Halloween party, and then catch Lisa, Tom and the rest of the cast on the season 2 premiere of Vanderpump Rules on November 4.

The Zombitini
Makes 1

Raspberry sauce, for decoration
1 lychee, canned with juice
1 raspberry
2½ oz. raspberry vodka
1½ oz. lychee liqueur

1. On the inside of a martini glass, make a few thin streaks with the raspberry sauce to look like veins. Insert a raspberry into the center of a pitted lychee (to resemble an eyeball), and drop it in the glass.

2. In a shaker with ice, mix the vodka, liqueur and ½ oz. lychee juice. Shake and strain into the martini glass, careful not to wash away the raspberry streaks.

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.
