Shrine and Cocktail Honor Elizabeth Taylor at Her Favorite Gay Bar


Elizabeth Taylor was a frequent visitor to West Hollywood gay bar The Abbey in recent years, and the bar has set up a shrine in her name, and is planning a special this weekend, TMZ reports:

"We're told the bar's offering a special drink in Liz's memory this weekend … and they're donating ALL the proceeds to Elizabeth's AIDS foundation. It's called the 'Blue Velvet Martini' — which they picked in honor of her role in the 1944 hit 'National Velvet' — and if you wanna try out their recipe … it's made with Blue Angel vodka and blueberry schnapps. Sources at the bar tell TMZ, regulars have been adding to the shrine non-stop since Elizabeth passed — sending flowers and gifts since yesterday morning."
