Cheers to My Favorite Cocktail {Juliet & Romeo from The Violet Hour}!

For those of your who haven't visited Wicker Park's The Violet Hour, go do it. Sure it's a little hipster, but the drinks are amazing and the atmosphere is so unique. During my first visit, the bartender convinced me to order the Juliet & Romeo. Ridiculous. I'm not a huge gin drinker but this is by far my favorite cocktail. The gin is accompanied by cucumber, which happens to be my favorite food, mint {so refreshing} and rose water {sexy, right?}.

Maybe I'll try to recreate it sometime soon. Perhaps for my wedding. I found the recipe and picture here. Where I also learned that GQ rated it in the Top 20 Cocktails in America. So apparently I'm not the only one who is digging this drink ... cheers!
