The ancient Greeks belived that amethyst had the power to ward off drunkenness. We’ve come up with a cocktail that uses vodka, maraschino liqueur, crème de violette, and Dubonnet to do just the opposite.


3 oz Belvedere vodka
1 ¼ oz maraschino liqueur
⅗ oz crème de violette
½ oz Dubonnet
Splash soda water

Preparation: How to make The Amethyst

  2. Strain into a large Martini glass.
