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.
