Hold up the Happy Hour plans—there's a few gems you need to know about before you go and order the usual. The OK! team took a trip over to the exclusive Diageo 4th on 5th Bar in midtown NYC for a celebratory event. OK! munched on the best focaccia bread ever, chatted away about pop culture, (duh, what else?!) and got the scoop on a few fabulous beverages that can be whipped up in your own kitchen, including one named after this very website you're reading! Yes, below you will find the OK-tini—a pink-colored drink created with Smirnoff. Call it the queen of all cocktails!

This fairytale-themed wine is filled with flavors like cherry pie and plum. A dream come true, perhaps? Not into the pie? Try the brand's Fairest Chardonnay, Lost Slipper Sauvignon Blanc, or Big Bad Red Blend instead!
