We decided to accompany our VIOLET dessert in our Taste the Rainbow themed dinner party with a Parma Violet vodka shot (any opportunity). It’s a great way to use this homemade syrup (recipe here) and to give yourself a pat on the back/liver for being awesome.
DISCLAIMER: We have very, we repeat, VERY roughly guessed the measurements for this shot mixture so tasting-as-you-go is recommended, and fun. We like it strong, so go softly-softly-catchy-monkey if you aren’t as tough as us…
- Smash it all in a jug and pop it in the fridge. Pay heed to the disclaimer above and taste it along the way to make sure you can hack it.
- Pour your crushed Parma Violets onto a flat small plate and shake to evenly cover. Run half a lime/lemon along the rim of your shot glasses and then place it flatly into the crushed sweets without pressing too hard. This is to create a dusting of the sweet along the rim of your shot glasses.
- Pour the mixture carefully into the glasses when you’re ready to serve.
We served ours alongside our Parma Violet ice cream in a dark chocolate cage – the perfect end to a colourful evening.
