Parfait Amour

Parfait Amour is a beautiful colored liqueur - it's a lovely shade of purple! I saw some in our liquor store just yesterday and thought I really must get some.....I didn't but paydays only 2 weeks away!!

What can you make with parfait amour? Well I have recipes for two shooters one is called Perfect Love and really plays on the purple color and the other is called Capucine and is mixed with blue curacao producing a beautiful deep blue color.

Perfect Love

1 measure vodka
1/2 measure parfait amour
1/2 measure maraschino
scoop crushed ice

Shake the liquid ingredients together in a shaker with ice and then pour over crushed ice that it is a shot glass.

Capucine

1 measure blue curacao
1 measure parfait amour
crushed ice

Pack a shot glass with crushed ice and pour the curacao in to the glass. Carefully top the drink up with the parfait amour.

Enjoy :)
