Cocktail Times: Candy-Colored Clown, Perfect Mardi Gras Cocktail
by David Lynch
Candy-colored clown: a strange name for a fun little “punch” of a cocktail.
It involves the unlikely combination of French Violette Liquor with the bite of citrus fruit, simple syrup, light rum and very special Bitter Truth Bitters from Germany.
I think the Candy-Colored Clown is what greets you in the morning and tucks you into bed at night. The name comes from a scene in David Lynch‘s movie Blue Velvet, and came to me in of a dream a couple of weeks ago.
No one would understand. Maybe Crème de Violette, but it’s too late for him.
