Lady in Violet

by James Stevenson

The classic White Lady cocktail is really delicious and one that usually flies under the radar, but today I’m bringing it back. I had a bottle of Monin Violet I was playing with for an Aviation cocktail and with color like this, a little bit goes a long way so I had plenty left over. I started experimenting with other flavors and somewhere along the way, I think I somehow mixed two different cocktails together.

The mixture was weird but surprisingly good and after isolating some of the ingredients that were overpowering and minimizing or removing them I ended up with this Lady in Violet cocktail. The best thing about Dolin Blanc is that it really brings a dry, slightly citrus element to the cocktail and allows the other ingredients to work together better and the lemon juice really accentuates that.
