parma violets cocktail.

Parma violet cocktail

A retro inspired cocktail featuring your favourite floral sweet. I've teamed up with Leicestershire based Burleigh's gin to bring you some exciting cocktail recipes on the lead up to World Gin Day 2016. Could there be a finer day? This recipe mixes their Signature London Dry Gin with violet liqueur with a twist of lemon before being topped with lemonade. This variety of their impressive gins is said to be crisp, fresh and vibrant with floral notes and a Parma Violet and lavender finish. A match made in heaven, I say.
