Rothman & Winter Crème de Violette

For a long time, crème de violette was pretty much impossible to come by in the United States. Prohibition wiped out demand for the stuff, and it wasn’t until the craft cocktail revolution of the last few decades that the Austrian brand Rothman & Winter Crème de Violette came to the rescue. It’s a sweet, floral liqueur made from essences of Queen Charlotte and March violets, both of which are native to the Alps. The classic Aviation cocktail recipe calls for a little bit of crème de violette, but all kinds of new drinks are being invented that put it to good use.
