  • Used a cherry garnish in place of the cherry bitters. Intriguing taste. Biggest demerit was the cloudy gray color (at least when made with R&W violette like I did). — ★★★★

Excellent variation! I made it with Vedrenne Violette Parfait Amour instead of Bitter Truth's creme de violette and it tasted much better and more balanced than traditional recipes. The color was nice sky blue too.
