This week I attended EFFEN By Design in Chicago at the chic ROOF @ The Wit, an event which celebrated the launch of EFFEN vodka's new marketing campaign "Provocatively Premium." I sampled their new signature cocktails and just have to share the delicious recipes, concocted by ROOF mixologist Jonny Abens.
My favorite was the Green City Gimlet - I love the fresh taste of the basil. Try it as a refreshing aperitif. If you're in the mood for bubbles, serve the Second City Sparkler, made with EFFEN black cherry, Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, fresh lemon, and prosecco.
