Jupiter Cocktail

The Jupiter Cocktail gets its celestial color from creme de violette, a purple floral liqueur. It has a heavenly taste too, like violets and herbs. The problem is that the cocktail has proportion issues. 2 tsp. is hardly enough creme de violette to color the drink. The addition of the same amount of orange juice means that it is cloudy and grey. Not an attractive color for a drink.
  • 2 oz. gin (Plymouth used)
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth (Dolin used)
  • 2 tsp. orange juice
  • 2 tsp. creme de violette
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
