Empress Gin Fizz Cocktail recipe

Celebrate the holidays in style with a Empress Gin Fizz Cocktail! This festive drink features fresh cranberries and ginger beer.

  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 6 drinks 1x


  • 2 C fresh cranberries
  • 1 C sugar
  • 6 ounces Empress 1908 Gin
  • 16 ounces Ginger Beer
  • 6-8 fresh sprigs of thyme
  • 1 orange


Prepare the cranberry mixture at least an hour before making the drinks so it has time to cool:

  1. In a medium saucepan add the cranberries, sugar and 3/4 c water.
  2. Cut the orange into 1/4 in slices and add 2 of them to the pan. 
  3. Cook over medium heat, stirring often until berries have broken down and mixture thickens to a syrup consistency about 5-7 minutes
  4. Remove orange slices and refrigerate until cool.

To prepare drinks:

  1. Fill a 32 ounce pitcher with ice and add the Empress 1908 Gin, Ginger Beer and cranberry mixture.
  2. Serve in glasses and garnish with thyme and fresh cranberries. 
  3. For a garnish, we sprinkled orange slices with sugar and carmelized with a torch.
