Violet Ray

A completely redone Cosmopolitan recipe.

created by Chris Carlsson,

Not content with the average Cosmopolitan (and feeling it has been done to death), we decided to fool with it and give it a distinctive twist.

4 oz Absolut Citron
1 oz Crème Yvette
1/2 oz Grand Marnier

Pour ingredients over ice in cocktail shaker. Shake for 25 seconds, stain into two chilled martini glasses.

(Optional: garnish with 3-4 fresh Violet petals)

You can also use a champagne float to make a Violet Ray Royale (prefer drier champagne to dial back sweetness personally)
