The chain is now serving the Oscar winner's Casamigos tequila, the ultra-premium stuff that Clooney and buddy Rande Gerber conjured up while at their vacation homes in Mexico. Tip: George likes the Citrus Adobo Margarita, made with blanco, fresh agave, Cointreau, chipotle adobo, fresh orange and lime. www.cpk.com

Forget bottle service, soda siphon cocktail service is the hot new trend in Miami right now. To help beat the heat, The Ritz Carlton South Beach, W Hotel South Beach and Cipriani’s are all jumping on the bubbly bandwagon with a Cointreau soda siphon. The drinks aren’t carbonated in the traditional sense (e.g., with a splash of club soda or prosecco); instead, mixologists use the cool tool to carbonate the entire cocktail with CO2, making the flavors, um, pop.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.
