I entered a drink making contest today called the Tin Bartender. The hilarious thing is that I am a visual artist…not a culinary or mixologist artist. I like my liquor simple and made of burbon; however, he was having trouble finding participants who were willing to work with this year’s ingredient: Violet Liquor.
I actually love the taste of violets so I decided to try my hand…and with some fancy handy work, I won! Note: presentation and performance was on the score cards and I’m nothing if not dramatic… Enjoy!
