What's the best UI for both selecting a default item in a list and selecting multiple as secondary?

As an example:

enter image description here

I would like to combine this so it doesn't take as much space.

Both dropdown lists are identical.

There are dropdowns that make use of multiselection in different ways.

However, and although it doesn't fit your short space requirement, I suggest you consider to use a dropdown for the default element and checkboxes for the secondary elements.
