cirque swizzle

1 1/2 oz Junipero Gin (Beefeater)
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1 tsp Crème Yvette
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Vanilla Syrup
1/4 oz Simple Syrup

Build in a Pilsner glass, fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Top with a thin layer of Crème Yvette (2 tsp) and add a straw.
Two Mondays ago, I returned to the first Death & Co. Cocktail Book and uncovered the Cirque Swizzle. This recipe crafted by Jessica Gonzalez in 2011 was named after the drink's "pretty pink color... a cotton candy-like appearance." Here, the Crème Yvette floated on top donated a violet and hint of berry aroma. Next, lemon and berry notes on the sip sailed into gin, herbal, and floral-violet flavors on the swallow with a vanilla finish.
