Violette Heaven!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I spent mine in Newport, Rhode Island and discovered my new favorite summer drink, prosecco and creme de violette served at Forty One Degrees North Restaurant as one of their signature cocktails.   Not only does it taste good but it is a beautiful shade of violette in your champagne glass!  Unfortunately the creme de violette liquer is not available in any of the stores around me but did manage to hunt it down online and will be ordering a few to enjoy this summer.   It really is a delicious cocktail and so light and perfect for hot summer nights.  This liqueur is produced from a careful maceration of Queen Charlotte and March Violets....so lovely...  It was a perfect weekend!
