Crème Yvette is a unique liqueur that is a beautiful blend of blackberry, cassis, raspberry, wild strawberry and dried violet petals. Originally produced in the US in Connecticut in the late 1890s, this potion is now produced near Bordeaux, France. The gorgeous color and berry bontanical flavors were something we really wanted to incorporate into an eye-catching cocktail and we were pleasantly surpised to find the Submarine Kiss cocktail on Crème Yvette’s site.
Pouring a velvety silver fizz, made with gin and egg white, on top of the fragrant Crème Yvette creates a beautiful almost ethereal separation, and we just love photographing layered cocktails.
