I've been making this drink of my own creation for a year now and want to share it with you all:

Absolute Treasure (cocktail):

1 teaspoon honey
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
2 ounces vodka
3/4 ounce Creme de Violette

Shake vigorously in a cocktail shaker three quarters full of ice, then pour. There should be a layer of ice flakes at the top. The taste is mildly sweet, tart, floral and refreshing - like Absolute Treasure on a cool spring day. If you're a drinker, I hope that you enjoy!

Haha, I didn't think of it, but that makes perfect sense! I came up with this trying to make a blue cocktail and when I saw the color I knew that I had to call it after my favorite Iris!
