This classic cocktail from the turn of the century will give you wings

This classic gin sipper enjoyed a heyday at the beginning of the cocktail renaissance and then all but fell into obscurity until a decade ago. When the mysterious crème de violette, reappeared on the American market, this sky blue colored cocktail once again saw the light of day. Today, this distinctive floral, citrus cocktail can be enjoyed at home!
