Holiday Cocktail - Lady Luxe
EMPRESS GIN + LADY LUXE
A perfect paring for a fun, festive holiday cocktail!
When we we heard that the Empress Hotel had introduced an all-natural, color-changing gin, we couldn’t believe it. The Fairmont Empress is a close member of our Good Life community, and just like them, we love a lil’ gin and juice. A little known fact is that we deliver about 36 Liters of Good Life Juice to the Fairmont kitchen each week. The Fairmont’s hard working kitchen crew then free-pours cold pressed juice by the glass for guests to enjoy.
Now, as many of you already know, we have been sharing our Lady Luxe gin recipe for years. It makes appearances at events on Vancouver Island all year long. But when we tried it with the Empress Indigo Gin, our Lady got a lot more Luxe.
The Empress 1908 Original Indigo Gin is 100% authentic and all-natural (just what we are looking for when it comes to a beverage). The gin is infused with vibrantly tinted butterfly pea blossom, giving it a lush and vivid indigo blue colour that changes to purple or even pink when combined with citrus juice.
Believe it or not it tastes even more impressive than it looks!
