Purple to Pink Gin Fizz - Ooh la la
A friend and I had the most fresh summer cocktail while baking last night (video soon to come). This one contains pea flower indigo-color gin, sparkling grapefruit juice, and fancy tonic. The gin changes from indigo to pink/purple when citrus hits it. Go grab yourself a bottle of Empress 1908 and share this colorful party trick.
2 ounces Empress 1908 Gin
1 ounce elderflower liquor
1/2 cup grapefruit juice unsweetened
1/2 teaspoon honey or cane sugar
basil for garnish
In a shaker, add the honey, elderflower liquor, and grapefruit juice along with ice and shake vigorously so all the ingredients are well-combined and frothy.
Pour into a coup or martini glass.
Slowly top with gin so it creates a separate layer.
Next, slowly top with sparkling rose. It will blend with the gin and create a pretty lavendar color.
Garnish with basil and slice of grapefruit.
Sip and enjoy!
