Mmmmm. This is one of our favorites. (did I say that last month?)
We first tried them at my birthday party in February and they were a big hit.
Lisa even said she woke up the next day craving another one…now that’s a well crafted beverage!
I always thought I didn’t like gin, but maybe I just didn’t like tonic because I LOVE it in this drink.
fresh lemon juice
Creme de Violette
(tip: keep all the ingredients refrigerated so you don’t need to water it down with ice at all!)
In each class put:
one cherry (these no dye Bada Bing cherries are amazing!)
2 ounces gin (we love this organic Death’s Door gin)
1/2 ounce of fresh lemon juice
1/4 ounce of maraschino liqueur
and 1/4 ounce of Creme de Violette
rub that lemon twist along the rim of the glass…
It is pretty, n’est ce pas?
A votre sante!
We’ll be serving these up at the shop on Saturday April 5th, from 4-6pm.
Come try one!
