If you're looking for cocktails that feature both vanilla vodka and crème de violets, we've got two intriguing options for you:

1. Violet Martini: This delightful cocktail takes vanilla vodka and violet syrup, harmonizing them in a cocktail glass for an enchanting, dessert-like drink. The introduction of vanilla vodka in place of the traditional gin gives it a unique aroma. The result is a cocktail that's as beautiful as it is delicious, boasting a high rating of 4.8/5. If you enjoy your drinks stirred and with a sweet yet refined vanilla twist, this one is a great pick.

2. Little Tickle: For those who appreciate a more complex flavor profile, the Little Tickle blends gin, vodka, and crème de violette in a delightful purple concoction. It boasts a higher alcohol content at 37.22%, providing a sophisticated, aromatic experience that's visually appealing as well. Shaken to perfection, this 4.44/5 rated cocktail is perfect if you're looking to try something with a bit more depth and floral essence.

Both cocktails bring out distinct characters of vanilla vodka and crème de violets, offering a refreshing and sophisticated taste experience. Whether you lean towards a sweeter, more straightforward drink with the Violet Martini or prefer the layered complexity of the Little Tickle, you can't go wrong with either choice.
