Looks wonderful. Simplicity often is key to great recipes and présence, which is once again proven as well by Kathy, great job! Can´t wait to try this one myself with raspberries as substitute of the strawberries tho. I was just wondering, is there any specific reason for pouring the drink from the tin back into the glass after shaking? Keep up the delicious work guys!

That´s a wonderful idea Kathy, to connect and involve the guest even more with the drink, the process and yourself as bartender. Personal attention is always highly appreciated :) Gotta give it a try in the bar this afternoon.

Another great video! The enthusiasm and lessons of the Small Screen Network´s bartenders are truly inspirational. Excellence is an art and someone like Charlotte is nailing that to the max, performance after performance!

I was wondering, as I don´t have Bitter Truth Violette Liqueur over here, would it be a good substitute to replace with Parfait d´Amour (Bols)? or will it probably result in whole different flavours?

Keep on this great work!
