It’s Friday and the sun is shining and the boys are all home and I was inspired to bring back the Empress Gin Friday Happy Hour post! This was an absolutely delicious cocktail, especially given our mutual love of Empress and mules!
The perfect blend of fresh and floral with a healthy kick of spice!
- 1.5 oz Empress 1908 Gin
- 1/4 oz Elderflower Liqueur
- 3/4 oz simple syrup
- 3/4 oz lime juice
- 1 oz ginger beer to top (we love the Q small cans found at Target)
- Mint to muddle
- Garnish with lime wheel, mint and candied ginger (Trader Joe’s)
Add lime juice and syrup to shaker and muddle 6 mint leaves. Add remaining ingredients, besides ginger beer, to shaker with ice. Shake until chilled and strain into glass. Top with ginger beer and garnish.
Other Empress Favorites
A cocktail made for celebration, the Empress 75 is sparkling, effervescent and deliciously sippable. Think of it as a graduated mimosa.
Meet your new favourite cocktail. Between an impressive array of fresh herbs and a delicate hint of lemon, the Windsor Garden is like sipping on spring.
Empress Royal Hawaiian
Tall, tropical and tasty. If you’ve ever wanted a sip of sunshine, the Royal Hawaiian is as close as you’ll get.
Empress Watermelon Sugar
The Watermelon Sugar cocktail is the summer sip you’ve been waiting for. With the refreshing flavours of watermelon, lime, and basil this drink is bound to be a hit!
The perfect cocktail for your summer harvest!
