Violet Fizz

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Tailor • Manhattan

Before importer Eric Seed reintroduced Crème de violette to the U.S. market last year, American bartenders like Tailor's Eben Freeman purchased the hard-to-find liqueur in London or Paris and packed it in their carry-on luggage to bring home.

  1. 2 ounces gin
  2. 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  3. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  4. 1/4 ounce Simple Syrup
  5. 1/2 ounce Crème de violette (violet-flavored liqueur)
  6. 1/2 ounce half-and-half
  7. 1 large egg white
  8. Ice
  9. 2 ounces chilled club soda
  10. 1 fresh edible violet or crushed candied violets (optional)
  1. In a cocktail shaker, combine all of the ingredients except the ice, club soda and violet. Shake well for 10 seconds. Add ice and shake for 10 more seconds. Strain the drink into a chilled highball glass, top with the club soda and garnish with the violet.
