Cocktail Hour: Elizabeth Taylor

In honor of the beautiful lady with the violet eyes, I am happy to bring you today's cocktail, the Elizabeth Taylor. This champagne cocktail is simple to mix, just a little bubbly with some Creme de Violette, which gives it a beautiful purple color. And oh-so-glam, just like it's namesake. So, this weekend, I suggest you rent a few of the classics, mix up an Elizabeth Taylor champagne cocktail, and toast to a lady more glamorous than any of us could ever hope to be. Cheers!

JSQ Note: This recipe was adapted from the Hotel DeLuxe recipe here

  1. At first glance, I thought you were suggesting diamonds as an ingredient in the cocktail... Too rich for my taste.

    GET IT!? RICH!

  2. Haha, Sean, you are too cute. maybe you can make ice that is in the shape of diamonds and throw them in too? Then it's definitely the bling bling-iest cocktail there is...

  3. SInce the Derby will be here in May I suggest a mint julep martini...

  4. you got my number here with the Violette creme...oh my how lovely is that! i was shocked when i heard the news about Liz, so sad this iconic lady is gone from our midst. but what a life she led. i love love love your photo edit ensembles, too good is what. ♥
