If you grew up as the pink and purple sister, then these crème de violette cocktails are going to become your new favorite way to imbibe. Heck, even if you were the green and blue sister, or the brother that got blamed for everything, you’ll probably still love these drinks too!
Gin is usually the go-to companion for crème de violette, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you can opt for tequila instead. Tequila balances out its floral sweetness.
A basic gin sour? How contrived. This rendition, however, amps things up with violet liqueur and blueberries, resulting in a lip-smackingly sweet and tart cocktail.
This riff on a bramble cocktail is made with gin, muddled fresh blackberries, fresh lemon juice, crème de eassis, crème de violette, and simple syrup.
Not only is the Peach Violet Empress Gin Sour delicious, but she’s a real looker, too.
This Violet and St. Germain Spritz is basically springtime in a glass, and will put you in a warm weather state of mind.
