Water Lily gin and creme de violette cocktail

This lovely little gem from The PDT Cocktail Book is one of our favorite ways to show off Crème de Violette. It’s rarely called for in such a large proportion, but here it’s perfectly balanced, bright and sweet like candy. If you have some Old Tom gin, this is a great place to show off its sweeter, less juniperous flavors. We wouldn’t use a cucumber gin like Hendrick’s, though; that’s just one too many flavors fighting for attention.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, preferably a pretty one, on the small side.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

I love this app

This is a great cocktail app. New recipes frequently added. And such a great library of drinks to choose from. Highly recommend to anyone looking to up their cocktail game and find new drinks.
