Sipping style

By SARA FAITH ALTERMAN  |  April 3, 2007

Of course, the heavyweight fashion hub of the Far East is Tokyo, where urban fashion thrives and Gwen Stefani snatches trends right from the streets. (Remember her Harajuku Girls?) Nod your head to the fashions of Japan by imbibing a cocktail named for another representative of Japanese culture, the dragon. Uni Sashimi Bar at Clio (370 Comm Ave, Boston, 617.536.7200) serves up a cocktail with jade-colored spice. The Enter the Dragon ($12) is a delicately fiery mixture of Stoli Oranj, Kalamansi lime juice, and cayenne pepper, which creates an aftermath of warm tingling on your soft palate.

Of course, let’s not forget, though, the good ol’ US of A. Boston will soon have a Fashion Week of its own, but until then, we’ll continue to drink to New York, the place for American geniuses like Zac Posen and Calvin Klein to strut their stuff (via those paper-thin models, of course). Head to SoHo (386 Market Street, Brighton, 617.562.6000), the eponymous celebration of the hippest neighborhood in Manhattan, for a SoHo martini ($8) — made with Skyy vodka and Blue Curacao with a splash of sour — to celebrate your style in style.

You don’t have to swathe yourself head-to-toe in designer labels in order to drink to your favorite designers. Of course, if you want to (and you can), we’re not stopping you. In fact, we applaud your chic savoir faire. Just don’t forget: you may have the trendiest handbag or the kickiest shoes, but the best accessory to any outfit is a perfectly mixed cocktail. Choose your booze with the same care and attention you give to your outfits, and in no time, you’ll be sipping in style.

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .

    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other. Instead, I find myself struggling to balance my beer between my knees and my overstocked paper plate on my thigh as I furiously poke at my BlackBerry.
