Rothman & Winter Creme de Violette Liqueur

( 3 Reviews )

Rothman & Winter's Crème De Violette Liqueur is one of the great mixing agents now available. All you need is a little gin and a lemon, and you've got a delicious and sophisticated cocktail. Elegant in its simplicity, this authentic alpine liqueur captures the fragrance, vibrant colors, and taste of the native wildflowers found in the Alps - the Queen Charlotte and March violets. Use it in classic cocktails such as the Blue Moon or Aviation, or enjoy as an ingredient in continental cuisine. This is probably the most commonly encountered violet liqueur you’ll find, not just because the bottle is classy but because it is made only from violet petals and sugar, so you won’t find any fruit overtones here as you do with Creme Yvette.

Brilliant purple in color. Intensely floral on the nose, with overtones of pine needles and funky dried potpourri. Gently sweet on the body, with some hospital overtones, driven perhaps by the underlying spirit, but overall it’s quite gentle but again, more focused on dried florals than fresh ones.

Creme de Violette

I first tasted this in Oregon on a river cruise. The bartender listed a “Lavender Sparkler” as his cocktail of the day. I loved it. I asked what was in it and he told me it was champagne and Creme de Violette. I am still trying to make it myself. I have to play with the proportions champagne/liquor, but it was pretty good. Still not as good as on the cruise, but soon...
