Not too sure how though...but think it could be a good birthday cocktail.Hope you enjoy it....Ingredients35ml/1¼fl oz gin1 tbsp maraschino cherry liqueur2 tsp violet-flavoured syrup25ml/1fl oz freshly squeezed lemon juice1 scoop ice1 twist orange rind, to garnishMethod1. Place the gin, maraschino cherry liqueur, violet syrup and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker. Add a scoop of ice and shake well. 2. To serve, strain the mixture into a Martini glass.

Thank you for this recipe - I shall make it on the 4th of July if I can find the violet-flavored syrup. Might have to wait for that till I visit the UK in July.
