Crème Yvette Violette Liqueur $42.99 - The original violette liqueur, first made in 1890, is now available again in the U.S. for the first time since 1969. This highly allocated item has the cocktail world buzzing for an authentic Blue Moon or Aviation. Cooper Spirits, makers of St. Germain, has had the original recipe for years and has finally concocted the extremely rare elixer and bottled it in a wonderful package. Made in Bordeaux, the liqueur is a blend of blackberry, raspberry, currant, and wild strawberry with dried violet petals from Provence and bits of vanilla, orange peel, and honey.
I was supposed to get this in a few weeks ago, but a problem with our vendor coupled with my vacation in New York delayed things, but that's probably a good thing because everyone else is already sold out! They didn't make much of this and, being a huge fan of the Rothman Violette, I'm super excited to get home tonight and make a Blue Moon!
