Je ne sais quoi…

Yeah, no clue what this. I mixed up some things I was craving and (thankfully πŸ™) it works! Ooooh, but as I’m thinking about it (while drinking it natch πŸ˜‰), I’ve decided to dub this the “Bittersweet Symphony”.

When I first peaked in the pantry at the liquor shelf, I was all Gin, Campari & Grapefruit. Then, because honestly it an easier reach, the Gin turned into Vodka. And when I went for the Grapefruit liqueur, the Violet liqueur gave me the sad eyes πŸ₯Ί, and I’m a sucker for those, so I changed things up again. #notsorry And of course πŸ‹ goes with everything, so here’s how it all came together.

Have I mentioned how much I love my new Elevate Craft cocktail shaker? I measure everything in the lid of the Shaker! It’s a thing of beauty! πŸ₯°
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 oz Violet Liqueur
  • 1 oz Fresh πŸ‹

Mix everything over ice, then shake, shake, c’mon baby shake. Pour in the glass of your choice, garnish with a lemon twist…or pinwheel in my case.

Such a pretty color!

Sip and how this pings off your whole mouth…it’s a balance of bitter, sour, and candy sweet dancing around. The sweet from the Violet Liqueur is very much a trip down memory lane and the Violet candy that I grew up with from Toulouse. The best ones always had little yellow balls of lemon sugar mixed in. 😍

Chin chin my lovelies and Happy Hump Day! Friday is just around the corner!
