Fleur Collins Cocktail
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 cocktail
St. Germain and Creme de Violette lend a floral twist to the bright and bubbly Tom Collins cocktail.
  • 2 ounces lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce St. Germain
  • ½ ounce Creme de Violette
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • ice
  • soda water
  1. Combine the lemon juice, gin, St. Germain, Creme de Violette, and simple syrup in a mixing glass and stir to combine. Fill a cocktail glass with ice and pour over the mixture. Top with soda.
Elderflower and violet liqueurs can be found at many liquor stores. I used St. Germain elderflower liqueur and Rothman & Winter Creme de Violette.

*Simple syrup is a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar. Just mix both in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar and bring the mixture to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, pour into a heatproof jar to cool, and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
