  • Personally, I'd use a lot less Crème de Violette. Also might be interesting to try the Cooper Creme de Yvette, although the vanilla flavors may clash.
  • I should like this more than I do... A bit too much lemon perhaps? Might try with lime also... — ☆☆☆

If you try the Tempus Fugit

If you try the Tempus Fugit instead of the Rothman & Winter, I think that will eliminate the desire to use less of the Violette. In fact, I doubled it, and it was still pretty gentle on the floral notes.

I don't know much about Pisco, other than to look for a Peruvian brand. I have Guacamayo, and I haven't been crazy about any of the Pisco drinks I have tried. Would anyone recommend another brand, or am I just not a Pisco girl? (I did like it in Peru a few years ago, but sometimes context is everything).
