INSPIRATION:

My inspiration was the famous rapper in late 90s “EVE”. I was listening to her song “Gotta Man” and felt inspired to make a a cocktail in her image. I used California Walnut because of her beautiful skin complexion. The Chicha Morada cordial is made with purple corn from Peru. I turned it into a cordial for this cocktail. The reason why I used it was because it has a robust and sweet tone, just like her music. …I love you… EVE…
