Drink: Palace of Versailles
From: Ca Va
Located in a quaint, corner shop in Westport, Ca Va is serving up french faire alongside loads of bubbles, including bubbly cocktails like this one.
The drink: floral, sweet, lovely, bubbly.
With gin, creme de violette, absinthe, grapefruit, and rose, this well-balanced cocktail has a surprisingly subtle taste. The absinthe is neither over-powering nor too understated and the creme de violette gives a sweetness to the gin, helped of course, by the sparkling rose. It’s a lovely cocktail to pair with an afternoon snack.
