Squid Mixes: Empress & Elderflower Tonic

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.
