What’s the Best Spirit to Add to Your Holiday Cocktails?

Whatever your liquor preference is, gin is a great spirit to utilize in your holiday cocktails. It’s light, bright, and typically mixes well with a plethora of ingredients. 

For the Pom Collins Punch recipe, I wanted to utilize one of my favorite premium gins – Empress 1908 Gin which is a citrus-forward blend with a botanical finish. It’s a great batch cocktail that balances the seasonal ingredients with a delicious gin.

Empress 1908 Gin is a hand-crafted spirit from British Columbia, Canada. It’s micro-distilled in small batch copper-pot stills and includes botanicals like juniper, coriander seed, grapefruit peel, cinnamon bark, butterfly pea blossoms, and the Fairmont Empress Blend Tea. Empress 1908 Gin is a botanical-forward spirit with a purple hue that changes colors when you mix it with ingredients like citrus!

Ingredients for the Pom Collins Punch

  • Empress 1908 Gin: this violet-hued gin adds the perfect combination of color and flavor to any cocktail. It’s micro-distilled in small, copper pots with eight botanicals like juniper, coriander, cinnamon, and butterfly pea blossom.
  • Lemon juice: adding fresh lemon juice brings out the flavors from the Empress 1908 Gin (as well as the colors too!)
  • Pomegranate juice: for this recipe, I used POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice, but you can use your preferred brand of juice from your local grocery store. 
  • Mandarin juice: I used fresh squeezed mandarin juice in this recipe. You can also substitute with navel oranges or tangerines. If you want to save some time, you can also try Natalie’s Fresh Tangerine Juice.
  • Simple syrup: balance this tart, citrus notes with a sweet simple syrup. You can either make your own or buy some from the store. I recommend Stirrings Pure Cane Simple Syrup.
  • Orange blossom water: this ingredient is a great addition that adds more depth and citrus notes. Find out more about orange blossom water here and where you can purchase your own bottle. 
  • Lemon sparkling water: for a sparkling finish, add in some sparkling lemon water. I recommend using Spindrift or La Croix
  • Rosemary and citrus leaves: Serve this specialty cocktail with a sprig of rosemary and some extra citrus leaves for a finished look. 
  • Fresh fruit: Serve this fun punch with some fresh seasonal fruit. I used pomegranate arils, mandarin, and lemon slices but any seasonal fruit will do!
