Crème de violette | Cocktail Party

Crème de violette

Crème de violette is a delicate, barely-sweet liqueur made from violet flower petals. It’s responsible for the gorgeous dusky hues of the Aviation, a drink which for years was printed without its most important ingredient due to the dearth of the stuff in the United States and elsewhere. Thank goodness it’s back in stock – the Aviation is one of our favorite cocktails.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
