North Italia’s fresh take on the gin and tonic gets a floral hint of lavender from Italicus Rosolio infused with butterfly pea. The infused Italicus lends to the cocktail’s violet shade as well as its name.
1½ ounces Aviation Gin
½ ounce infused Italicus Rosolio
½ ounce lemon juice
3 ounces Mediterranean tonic
Whole butterfly pea blossoms
Crush butterfly pea blossoms and muddle gently, with Italicus Rosolio. Strain and soak for 24 hours. Fill Collins glass with ice and build cocktail. Top with tonic and lemon wheels.
