The Blue Moon
A cocktail which doesn’t require too many ingredients but is very pleasing on the eye. Each ingredient perfectly blends together and results in a semisweet floral flavour balanced by the tartness of the lemon juice and that gin tang. It is very fortunate for us all that creme de violette or Creme Yvette has been recently revived after thirty years of death.
