Last week’s offering made me nostalgic for the old days, when women wore gloves and dressed to travel and when men had a bar in the office. I was watching an old Columbo movie about a murderer whose alibi involves his lover dressed as his wife taking a flight, and all I could think of was “Holy cow!! Look at the space between the seats and the ashtrays and THEY ARE DRINKING COCKTAILS!!”
- 2 parts gin
- 1 part maraschino liqueur
- 1 part lemon juice
- ½ part violet liqueur
Pour ingredients into an ice-filled shaker and mix well. Strain into a coupe, and garnish with cherries if desired. The violet liqueur gives the drink the look of a clear sky.
Your head will be a bit fuzzy, though 🙂
