The addition of Creme de Violette introduces a subtle floral undertone, deepening the drink's bouquet without overwhelming the other flavors. Typically served in a cocktail glass, the Liberation offers a harmonious blend that appeals to those who enjoy a sophisticated and aromatic drinking experience. Its presentation is often elevated with a garnish such as a flamed lemon twist, adding a final, citrusy flourish to the sensory journey.

~ Plymouth, being not just a brand but a style of gin, is recommended over other gin. This recipe will work with dry gin, however. Alternatively you may want to add the crème de violette after the rest of the drink is made, for effect and so the last sip is violet. ~
