The Violet Hour's Hush and Wonder cocktail

The Violet Hour, an elegant Chicago watering hole and 2014 Outstanding Bar Program nominee, beckons discerning clientele with many luxuries: a romantic, serene space with floor-to-ceiling curtains, high-backed blue leather chairs, flickering candles and chandeliers; fine-tuned volume levels and elbow room; and an eclectic selection of artisanal cocktails made with painstaking precision. One shining example of partner/mixologist Toby Maloney's craft is the Hush and Wonder, a rum-based libation featuring a subtle Crème de Violette rinse. With an elegant, floral undertone and bright notes from fresh lime juice and grapefruit bitters, this drink is the perfect start to your weekend. Get the recipe here.
