The English Prof recently introduced my wife to Empress 1908 Gin, an 85-proof, Canadian concoction dyed indigo with butterfly pea flower. My wife liked it enough to score us our own bottle. I'm always delighted to add a splash of color to the liquor cabinet. The gin pairs nicely with Fever-Tree's Elderflower Tonic Water.
I used 2 ounces of the Empress and the full 6.8-ounce bottle of the tonic. The gin flavor is gentle and the elderflower brings delightful sweetness to the mixture. No doubt, it's also quite pretty.
