A Spring Fling Cocktail is a pretty little drink, for big (and small) celebrations.Spring has sprung. And even though our parties are limited to the comfort of our home, we’re still finding plenty of reasons to celebrate. Whether it’s the change of seasons, the Easter holiday, or Passover, we feel that cocktails are essential now more than ever. Enter our newest pretty drink: The Spring Fling Gin Cocktail.
When our friends at Empress 1908 sent us some of their incredible gin, hand-crafted in British Columbia, we were so excited. Gin and Tonics were my drink of choice when I first moved to New York, and somehow, unintentionally, I had migrated away from them. When Keith and I began experimenting with this cocktail creation, I knew tonic had to be a part of it. But there was something special about this gin. Its dry, crisp flavor, created by classic Empress tea and eight carefully selected botanicals is a step above the rest.
As if the flavor were not enough, Empress 1908’s butterfly pea blossom gives it a uniquely beautiful, all natural indigo hue that makes for quite a canvas when creating cocktail art. We paired it with a splash of pomegranate juice and lime to create a stunning ombré effect. This drink tastes as lovely as it looks, and it takes any celebration to the next level (even the ones at home for two).
