Gin, Elderflower liqueur, Crème de Violette, Lemon juice, Lemon peel
Combine ingredients in iced tumbler or shaker. Shake and Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a flamed lemon twist.
Plymouth, being not just a brand but a style of gin, is recommended over other gin. This recipe will work with dry gin, however. You may want to add the Creme de Violette after the drink is made for effect & so the last sip is violet.
Taking a cue from the classic gin cocktails of the early 20th century, Plymouth gin is mixed with a floral liqueur and lemon juice. Made for a party for the Backstory crew just after International Women's day & around the time of the Tahrir Square protests. Named by V the P.
