We were so excited to send out Artisan Drinks violet blossom tonics to our members this month - they have been a huge hit! Adding a complexity to the standard gin and tonic, the violet blossom tonics are worlds away from the sugary sweet taste of a lot of violet gins out there and we luuuurve the lilac hue that it gives your G&T!
We love a trend, especially a gin trend so we are completely jumping on the violet band wagon, and with the help of Artisan Drinks we have created a list of our favourite violet gin cocktails.

20ml white vermouth
15ml lemon juice

10ml egg white
