Violets for Winona

Molly Prentiss’ debut, Tuesday Nights in 1980, arrives with all the swaggering decadence that Manhattan displayed at the beginning of that gritty, art-fueled decade.  Within the pages of Tuesday Nights, we read that purple was the color of big money, so for one of the patrons in the book, I put it in a glass.

1.5 oz cream of coconut

1.5 oz crème de violette
