Let's jazz up your party vibes with a show-stopping Champagne cocktail! This drink is a purple-hued wonder, made for New Year's Eve and every festivity in between! Imagine the subtle floral notes of crème de violet mingling perfectly with the bright, tangy citrus and your favorite gin. Plus, this cocktail isn't just a star in your glass—it's the secret to heavenly pastry glazes and berry bliss. Elevate your celebrations with a sip that's as versatile as it is delicious!

ingredients

6 oz Champagne or sparkling wine (we love this paired with Une Femme - Betty or Veuve Clicquot - Yellow Label)

4 oz crème de violette

2 oz fresh clementine or orange juice

2 oz fresh lemon juice

2 oz gin

Lemon slice, clear sanding sugar or edible glitter, and lemon twists

directions

  1. Rub half the rim of 4 stemmed glasses (preferably coupe glasses) with lemon slice and dip into sanding sugar, if using. Chill glasses until ready to use.

  2. Combine crème de violette, clementine juice, lemon juice, and gin in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 30 seconds. Strain into prepared glasses, top off with Champagne, and garnish with a lemon twist, if using.
