Presenting my newest concoction with DIY Cocktails: The Shrinking Violet Cocktail. It’s so named because this cocktail is likely to shrink rapidly as soon as you taste it.
Oh, and it uses Crème De Violette Liqueur, a brandy-based liqueur with flavoring from violets.
I recently tried this liqueur for the first time. It’s sweet with floral notes and goes great with champagne. Not only does this cocktail have a lovely purple hew, it is easy to make. It would be great at a wedding, anniversary, or just to fancy-up a Friday evening.
Shrinking Violet Cocktail
1 oz Crème De Violette Liqueur
Violet, pansy, or viola blossom to garnish (optional, but recommended)
Pour the Crème De Violette Liqueur into a champagne flute. Top with champagne. Garnish with flowers. Enjoy!
