Violet Fizz Cocktail
By Robert Hess
The use of violet liqueur in the Violet Fizz Cocktail gives the drink not only a delightful pale violet color but an earthy and floral quality perfect for showcasing a floral and well balanced gin. Adding soda water helps to lengthen and bring together the remaining ingredients making for a refreshing summer sipper.
