4 oz crème de violette
2 oz fresh clementine or orange juice
2 oz fresh lemon juice
2 oz gin
Lemon slice, clear sanding sugar or edible glitter, and lemon twists
Rub half the rim of 4 stemmed glasses (preferably coupe glasses) with lemon slice and dip into sanding sugar, if using. Chill glasses until ready to use.
Combine crème de violette, clementine juice, lemon juice, and gin in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 30 seconds. Strain into prepared glasses, top off with Champagne, and garnish with a lemon twist, if using.
