"Misty Iris | Crafted Pour"

"This is the first cocktail I came up with and liked enough to actually write down the specs and make again and again. The concept of the drink is simple, and one that I keep coming back to: a bright, refreshing, absinthe-forward cocktail. The Creme de Violette meshed nicely with the absinthe, and the bitters are there to help round out the middle notes. Gin seems like a natural fit here but after trying a whole bunch in varying ratios with the vodka they only ever served to muddy things and nothing quite beat the clean flavors the vodka provided. I recommend doing a shorter shake as it's a bit delicate to stand up to a whole ton of dilution.
