Lillian Alling In Your Glass

A romantic dinner. Drinks after work. A girls night out. A business lunch meeting.

What do they all have in common?

There are all great occasions to try out the new Lillian Alling cocktail drink at YEW Restaurant and Bar in the Four Seasons Hotel!

Heard on last weekend's Saturday Afternoon at the Opera, YEW bartender extraordinaire Justin Taylor concocted this utterly original cocktail. FYI, Justin also came up with the 2010 Winter Olympic Cocktails for YEW last winter.

As for the Lillian Alling cocktail, Justin says it's "dramatic looking for the opera crowd and refreshing & delicious for a journey like Lillian's."

Lillian Alling cocktail:

2 oz vodka

1/4 tsp red cayenne pepper sauce

1/4 tsp peach bitters

3/4oz elderflower cordial

1 oz fresh lime juice

1 oz fresh cucumber

pinch of fresh cilantro

Top with seltzer water and serve in an oversized wine goblet with a tied cucumber slice.

YEW Restaurant is open everyday from 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm for dinner.

YEW Bar is open Sunday through Wednesday 11:00am - midnight & Thursday through Saturday 11:00am - 1:00am

Perfect times for a pre-show drink to get you in the mood for Lillian Alling or as a nightcap after our world premiere.

Enjoy. (but please drink responsibly).
