Social Distance Queen cocktail recipe
New recipe alert! Check out SOCIAL DISTANCE QUEEN: a very easy cocktail you can make featuring lots of gin, and not much else.
If you're a fan of Old Fashioneds you'd be into this variation made with Empress 1908 Gin. We'll be following the same format with heavy booze + sugar + bitters + citrus peel.
This time we've made a lavender syrup and we're using coffee bitters to bring out more notes in this gin. If you find this super strong you can dilute it by adding in an ounze of dry vermouth to lighten it up a bit into a very beautiful gin martini style cocktail. There's so many options to play with this boozy delight!
Hope you're all staying healthy and safe at home. It's been a wild time for all of us, and we've been working on a way to provide some positive cheer through custom cocktail kits delivered to your door every Saturday in Toronto.
