Stormy Morning Cocktail


It's Friday, and currently 14 degrees outside here in St. Louis. So, obviously we are talking cocktails that look like spring. Let's be honest I am so over winter, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I first had this drink at Gram & Dun in Kansas City. It's one of those bars you can tell them what you like and they make something fabulous for you. I literally wrote down the ingredients while I was at the bar, because I was so obsessed. The only problem with this drink is tracking down the creme de violette. Apparently people in Missouri aren't really into the creme de violette. Weird, right? So here it is:

Stormy Morning

1.5 oz Creme de Violette
1.5 oz St. Germain
1 oz fresh lime juice
4 oz Champagne
Lime Wedge for Garnish

Pour the Creme de Violette over ice. Add St. Germain, lime juice, and champagne. Garnish with a lime. Cheers!
