Friday Happy Hour: a tribute to Elizabeth Taylor

This week, we're interupting our regular schedule to bring you an original cocktail from Rogers Park Retro in honor of Elizabeth Taylor, the Violet Eyes. Sweet with an edge, much like the actress by whom it is inspired, the Violet Eyes casts its spell at first glance.

The recipe is 3 parts vodka, 1 part triple sec, 1/2 part creme de violette, and a teaspoon of bar sugar or simple syrup. Soft, beautiful, strong, and original, just like the original Violet Eyes.
