Violet-berry liqueur

Bottle of Creme Yvette for cocktail recipes

Violet-berry liqueur is our generic name for Crème Yvette, a beautiful ruby-violet liqueur made from violet petals, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, currants, orange peel, vanilla, honey and spices. We don’t yet know of any substitutes for this unique liqueur and its mile-long ingredient list, but we’re always on the hunt!

Crème Yvette only returned to market in 2009 after a 40-year hiatus, and to this day it can be difficult to find. It’s a bit like crème de violette or raspberry liqueur, and either will do as a decent-enough substitute in a pinch.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
