You can make that one again anytime......

Tonight's tipple is another Creme de Violette recipe.  It was also the inaugural use of my home infused tangerine vodka.  The drink is named the boulevard, and the recipe as written is below:


1¾ Ounce Belvedere Orange Vodka
½ Ounce St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
¾ Ounce Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
¾ Ounce Agave Nectar
¾ Ounce Crème de Violette.

1. Combine Belvedere, elderflower liqueur, lime juice and agave nectar.
2. Add ice, cover and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
3. Gently pour Crème de Violette into glass so that it sinks to the bottom of the glass.
4. Garnish by floating one or two edible flowers on top of the drink.

I modified mine based on preferred level of sweetness and what I have on the shelves.....

1 3/4 oz Home infused Tangelo vodka (yum!)
slightly less than 1/2 oz St Germain
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1/2 agave nectar
3/4 oz Creme de Violette

I used a lime slice garnish

This was another very refreshing drink with a good balance of tart and sweet.  It went down smoothly and quickly, and was perfect for the late afternoon/early evening warm weather we are having.  Everett said "feel free to make this one again soon!"
Not to worry, I shall!

Salud and cheers!
