Drillaud Recipe: The Water Lily


Here’s another cocktail recipe featuring Drillaud French Liqueur. This time we dig up a more obscure cocktail that features more than one of the Drillaud flavors:


Cocktail GlassWater Lily


3/4 oz gin
3/4 oz Drillaud Orange Brandy
3/4 oz Drillaud Creme de Violette
3/4 oz lemon juice


   Shake ingredients with ice, strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange twist. 


Some people prefer a little more gin – add up to 2 oz if you like it less sweet and more cutting and botanical.

We must admit finding this one in Mr. Boston Official Bartender’s Guide (a really great resource, by the way). We tried it because it uses more than one of the Drillaud flavors, but we recommend it because it is delicious. The water lily is a bright, floral cocktail that reminds us of springtime. The tart combination of floral, herbal and citrus notes can be quite potent.
