1 TBL. Violet Syrup
1/2 glass bubble water
This is a wine spritzer with the violet syrup added. I choose a dry Gewurztraminer because of it fruity and floral character. I think it would go well with the violets. I posted a half wine, half bubble water ratio. But I have learned working at a winery that everyone taste things differently, so you need to play with the amounts to find what suits you. Also any fruity (which is different from sweet) white wine would work.
I sadly did not have any more violets to garnish my drink, so I use a pansy. But a floating sugared violet would be the perfect garnish. La-Tea-Da has the most interesting recipe for sugared flowers that does not use egg whites. Check it out.
Thank you La-Tea-Da and thank you again Joanne for sharing with all of us. I will be posting in a couple of weeks a rose syrup recipe and my all time favorite summer cocktail. So stay tuned !!
