If you've been paying attention in the slightest to this most recent season of Gossip Girl, then you'll have noticed how New York's Empire Hotel has become one of the characters, after it was bought by Chuck Bass. Now that the hotel is making appearances on TV, the real life property believes it should embrace the connection by debuting "Gossip Girl cocktails."

Concocted by the Empire's cocktail consultant Somer Perez, there are drinks for each Gossip Girl main character (even the dudes!). You can find them being served in the hotel's Lobby Bar, and each cocktail is $15. There's even an "XOXO" cocktail, with secret ingredients they'll never tell.

After the jump, the rest of the character cocktails...

Jenny’s Tartlet
Light and playful like a sweet tart candy, but not to be deceived – the cocktail packs a lot of punch between the rum and the grapefruit, essential ingredients for the new Queen Bee.

Jenny's Tartlet recipe revealed for HotelChatter: 1 ½ oz. Montecristo White Rum
2 oz. Grapefruit Juice
½ oz. Lemon Juice
½ oz. Simple Syrup
2 Sprigs Mint
In a mixing glass, muddle the mint with the lemon juice and simple syrup. Add all other ingredients and shake. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a lollipop.
