Gin, Crème de Violette, Egg white, Lemon juice, Lemon peel
Shake, strain, straight up, cocktail glass. Egg white and garnish are suggestions of Ted Haigh, not in the original.
A 1917 version uses Yvette, dry vermouth instead of lemon juice, and orange bitters.

Could be okay if the sour was balanced with simple, but probably still not great.
Try with egg white before finalizing score.
Not a huge Creme de Violette fan, and this was too much. Worth re-trying with Creme Yvette.
