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.

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!
