Violet scented Italian soda is the base of this cocktail, and gives it a truly floral tone, over which we layer rose syrup, peach nectar, and gin.

We love how spring-like this cocktail is, and we can sip it without risking any allergies!

The Italian soda smells like the first blossoms of spring but tastes surprisingly crisp. The Rose syrup adds another flower into the mix, and it is made from organically grown roses in a convent garden in western Liguria, making it an even more appropriate Easter selection.
