Creme de Violette
Last night, I made the classic Blue Moon cocktail:
2 oz. dry gin
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz. creme de violette
Shake with ice and strain
When the CdV is diluted that much, it takes on a cool blue hue. The drink had a whiff of floral, but it wasn't overwhelming, and I actually could have added a bit more CdV.
Next I want to try it topped with sparkling wine. We did that this past weekend with St. Germain Elderflower Liquor, and it was lovely.
