Crème de Canne Collins

Jared Sadoian, The Hawthorne | Boston

Rhum agricole is a “stellar” choice of partner for oft-misunderstood Crème de Violette, says Jared Sadoian of Boston’s The Hawthorne, as the spirit’s sugarcane aromas “can be enhanced by a small dose of violette.” In the Crème de Canne Collins, Sadoian uses the two as the base for a fragrant, citrus-driven cocktail, all topped with soda to further enhance the experience of its layers of aromatics.
