Been seeing a lot of beautiful blue drinks of recent. Most of which used curacao, but there were some showings of Violet and Butterfly Pea as well. With the recent splash of sun — though still cold — we figured Violet was the best option for Sunday. But then we hit a small snag. We expected another sunny day to better showcase those lovely soft blues, but instead got tons of rain and complete overcast. We just had to make the best of it with the limited light.
Viola De Lesseps
▪️1oz @thebittertruthcompany Violet Liqueur
▪️.5oz @luxardousa Maraschino
▪️.25oz Giffard Vanilla Liqueur
▪️BS Lime Oleo-Saccharum
Place all ingredients in shaker and reverse dry shake 💃. Double strain in your prettiest coupe glass and garnish with Butterfly Pea 🦋 flowers.
First off - Any idea where the cocktail name comes from? Come on movie buffs! Hint: it will probably make for a good Valentine’s Day movie. That being said, we can’t tell you how relieved we are that, even with the limited light and natural blue colors, you can still definitely tell that this is very much a blue cocktail. We have quite a few liqueurs in this concoction, but that is mostly to counter the citrus brought by the lime and oleo. The cocktail is of course insanely easy to drink, with that wonderfully sweet and soft flowery 🌸 flavor that Violet is known for. What about the other ingredients? They are there just to provide enough background flair on the palate so one doesn’t get bored with the cocktail. Though, that may be hard considering our taste tester finished it in less than a couple minutes. Maybe it’s too easy to drink 🤔.
Tag a friend you would ❤️ to share this delicious drink with. #sharingiscaring 😜

It’s not goodbye, it’s I’ll see you later. Prospera Hotels has been my home for over 4 years and stepping away wasn’t easy. I’ve had the honor of opening two hotels, got promoted a handful of times, worked with the DREAM team, played as my bosses right hand woman and made the greatest friends. Thank you all for supporting and believing in me 🙌🏾 I’m so excited for this next step in my career and I’ve officially accomplished my goal (just a year late). I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and I’m ready to set my next goal! #hospitality PC: @_jasslynn_
