Bella Luna

Bella Luna cocktail with gin, elderflower liqueur, creme de violette, lemon juice, and simple syrup

We never get tired of all the different ways mixologists find to combine gin, lemon, and crème de violette. It’s such a classic sweet-sour-botanical combination, and it rarely fails to delight.

Enter Death & Co’s Bella Luna, a lovely pale violet cocktail with an extra dose of floral flavor, thanks to the inclusion of elderflower liqueur. Death & Co’s original recipe actually calls for Crème Yvette, a liqueur that falls somewhere between crème de violette and raspberry liqueur. If you’ve got it, use it – the ruby color is extraordinary – but otherwise, your favorite CdV will be delicious.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
