  • Used Rothman and Winter. Campari improves Crème de Violette but I think that CdV is just not that.. good tasting. — ★★★
  • Bitter tart. Cloudy purple (with R&W liqueur) is not beautiful, but the violette is surprisingly balanced. — ★★★★

Comments

It is sweet, but also tart, bitter, herbal, floral.  I looked at the recipe thinking I'd end up adding more lime, but it's tart as is.  Granted,  this recipe is for those that aren't afraid to use  violette more than a barspoon at a time...  one could always add more base spirit or top with soda


Surprised by this as Creme de Violette usually takes over. I cheated it down a notch but the violette didn't overpower. I might try it with Hendricks next time to see what adding another floral note does.
