I love keeping a frozen drink on rotation during the summer months, and one I’ve been sipping on is the deliciously blended Empress Watermelon Slushie. It’s a simple and fun frosty concoction that features one of my top choices for gin – Empress 1908 Gin. Crafted using a unique blend of eight botanicals including butterfly pea blossom, ginger root, and juniper berries, this indigo-hued gin is a favorite to mix with. Frozen watermelon cubes, Aperol, gin, fresh lemon, and a touch of honey come together in a snap for this refreshing cocktail. This recipe serves 3-4, so it’s perfect for hosting a few more summertime BBQs!
Empress 1908 Gin originates from the Victoria Distillers in British Columbia and it’s crafted with 8 botanicals including juniper, grapefruit peel, butterfly pea blossoms, and the Fairmont Empress Blend Tea in small batch copper-pots.
