    Love the idea of this drink but being a bar in a smaller town we have a very hard time being able to get creme yvette from our distributors and obviously if the liquor store has it (every once in a blue moon) it is fairly spendy so i doubt itll end up on our list but I encourage everyone to make one at home like I did
