About this Cocktail
This is apparently a very old cocktail, but Creme de Violette wasn't available in the U.S. for a long time until recently. This is a similar recipe to several found various places on the web.
2 oz gin
Â½ oz lemon juice
1/2 oz maraschino
1/4 to 1/2 oz CrÃ¨me de Violette
Shake well with ice and fine strain in to a cocktail glass. Garnish with a Maraschino cherry.
