Tonight's cocktail fare: The Stormy Morning
I bought the fairly recently available Creme de Violette to make Aviation cocktails, but the color and the floral taste are making me a fan. So, we are on a violet drink kick!
This drink is also one of my new favorites....it is so refreshing and floral without being cloyingly sweet. This would be a perfect brunch drink, but it will do for just about anytime for me!
I modified the recipe according to taste and the fact I had Meyer lemons but no limes on hand.
1.5 oz Creme de Violette
1 oz St Germain
1 oz Freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice
4 oz bubbles (I used prosecco)
Over crushed ice, pour the Creme de Violette, then the St Germain, then the lemon juice. Top off with the bubbles. Garnish with a citrus wedge if available. I used all my lemons for juice, so no garnish, oh well. It is not a key player in this drink like the Sazerac.
I LOVE THIS COCKTAIL!!!
