The other night I decided to take a different approach to the flavor profiles in my drink. Normally I lean towards the boozier, slightly bitter side of the spectrum. To switch things up, I looked through my bar for liqueurs with a more floral personality. Creme de Violette was an obvious place to start. The aromas in this bottle make you feel like you’ve walked into a flower shop. A friend recently lent me some, and I’ve only put it to use in Aviations so far. This was the perfect opportunity to see how it gets along with other bottles. Plus, the news that Prince had passed just broke, so I figured the purple liqueur would be a nice mini-tribute.
