The past few months we’ve been without Empress Gin and so when we were in Florida we picked up two bottles. So with current eyes on The Crown, the Royals, the no longer royals, we come to the “Queen Victoria “! A perfect purple elixir you’re certain to enjoy and if you like dress it up with some Crown Jewels 💎 of your own!
2 oz Empress Gin
1/4 oz Giffard Creme de Violette
3/4 oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Torani Lavender Syrup
Lemon wheel garnish
Combine all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and dry shake for 30+ seconds.
Add ice and shake again for another 10 seconds.
Double strain into a chilled martini glass & garnish with a lemon wheel on a dress picks.
