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.
