“The Violet Hour had the Marion, and this is the Marionette,” says Mike Ryan, the onetime Violet Hour cocktail whiz and newly crowned head bartender at River North’s just-opened gastrolounge Sable. “It’s an ode to nuance and subtlety.” Made with El Tesoro Platinum tequila, Luxardo maraschino liqueur, Peychaud’s bitters, crème de menthe, and lime juice, this sipper ($10) can pull our strings anytime.
