Recipe: The Violet Beauregarde

The Violet Beauregarde*

1 oz gin (we recommend New Amsterdam, which is both thrifty and decent)
3 oz tonic
A splash of violet liqueur (we recommend Rothman & Winter Creme de Violette, available at Zipp’s)
Lowball glass

Throw four or five small ice cubes into the lowball glass. Pour in an ounce of gin, and then three ounces of tonic. Stir briefly. Splash in enough violet liqueur to give the drink a light purple tint — use restraint!
