I partnered with Empress 1908 Gin to mix up the Rose Colored Glasses recipe! Recipe and ideas are my own.Jump to Recipe
I’ve always been a fan of Empress 1908 Gin, so when they unveiled their latest creation, Elderflower Rose, I was so excited to dive into some new cocktail experiments! Elderflower Rose Gin boasts an understated floral palate adorned with citrus and spice notes. Its gorgeous ruby hue, achieved through a unique infusion of red rose petals and black carrots, definitely caught my attention.

Inspired by Empress Elderflower Rose Gin, I crafted the Rose Colored Glasses cocktail – a delightful concoction that unites the elegance of Empress Elderflower Rose Gin with the warmth of cardamom, zing of fresh lime juice, sweetness of honey, and creamy coconut milk. A toasted coconut rim ties it all together, making each sip perfect for a relaxing fall night!
Begin by toasting shredded coconut in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until it turns golden brown. Next, drizzle honey syrup along the rim of a coupe glass. Then sprinkle the toasted coconut over it until the rim is generously coated.
Add a cardamom pod to your cocktail shaker. Give it a gentle muddle to release the pod’s aromas and crack some of the seeds. Next add Empress Elderflower Rose Gin into the shaker, followed by lime juice, honey syrup, and coconut milk. Add ice to the shaker, seal it tightly, and shake until the cocktail is chilled.
Strain into the prepared coupe glass with its coconut rim. Garnish with edible flowers and sage, if desired. Cheers!
