How to Make Violet Cordial
HOW TO MAKE WILD VIOLET CORDIAL It’s that wonderful time of the year when violets make their brief appearance, and my yard is filled with the beautiful little deep-purple flowers. A few years ago, I posted a tutorial on how to make violet syrup, and I thought it would be fun to revive that recipe with a twist. I made the same basic syrup, but added some vodka to the mixture to make a lovely violet cordial that can be sipped by itself or added to other beverages to make a light floral cocktail.

Another recipe gave proportions as "4 C crushed pomegranate seeds, 1 C honey, and 2 C vodka."
