I used El Dorado 5. The violette/sherry combination sounds like a mess, but this is delicious

Phenomenal! I am impressed at the creator's thought to combine these items. If you have the ingredients which are cheap if you want it to be, make it!

I found this to be very sophisticated and delicious. I will totally make it again.  But what color is it supposed to be?  I used gold rum and did not have the "right" kind of sherry (I used amontillado), so it might be my fault that it turned out kind of grey.  (I mean, looking at the title, it's supposed to be blue I assume? : -) 

Curated to add source to Reference section. Thanks!

I used Brugal rum and Amontillado sherry. Very nice idea, but my balance was off - too much lime for me, and I upped the rum. That helped. Can't find that sherry, so I'll try with others or maybe just Punt es Mes or other vermouth. Color was ugly gray/green but I like that!
