Presenting my newest concoction with Drink of the Week: The Shrinking Violet Cocktail. It is so named because this delicious cocktail is likely to shrink rapidly as soon as you taste it.
Oh, and it uses Crème De Violette Liqueur, a brandy-based liqueur with flavoring from violets.
I recently tried this liqueur for the first time and thought it was delicious. It is sweet with floral notes and it goes great with champagne. Not only does this cocktail have a lovely purple hew, it is easy to make. It would be great at a wedding, anniversary, or any other romantic situation… or just to fancy-up a Thursday evening.
Shrinking Violet Cocktail
1 oz Crème De Violette Liqueur
Violet, pansy, or viola blossom to garnish (optional, but recommended)
Pour the Crème De Violette Liqueur into a champagne flute. Top with champagne. Garnish with flowers. Enjoy!
