Spirited – Feb. 2019


Our recommendation from an area pro
From Joe Renaud, Beverage Director, Home Grown Café

Violet Dream
For this drink, I thought of my favorite cocktail and asked how I could customize it more for me. I love violet liqueur and I love citrus. I also love the cocktail Last Word. So with this one I pulled an audible and took out the gin and added violet liqueur and lime juice. The Chartreuse gives you the winter vibes with its piney notes and the citrus and violet liqueur remind me of spring and the warmer weather to come. This is a sipper that gives you the feel of spring and summer, all from the comfort of your couch in the middle of winter.

Things you’ll need:

• .75 oz Violet Liqueur ( Liqueur De Violettes)
• .75 oz Maraschino Liqueur
• .75 oz Green Chartreuse
• .25 oz lemon juice
• .25 oz lime Juice

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake, strain into your favorite glass and enjoy!

Come in to HomeGrown and try this tasty cocktail or stop in your local liquor store and get what you need to fill you summer vibes needs. Cheers!
