If you've never had Creme de Violette liqueur, it's essentially brandy flavored with violet flowers. It's very sweet with a subtle, floral aroma. It's also a deep, dark purple color, which sort of makes you feel like you're drinking something that should actually taste awful.
I would definitely try this cocktail again, though it looks like there are many other interesting Creme de Violette combinations out there. I wonder if any other joints here in Seattle serve them?
Looks like I've got some exploring to do!

P.S. Stay tuned for some cool DIY projects this week that don't have anything to do with cocktails, I promise! :)
