Ideas for beautiful cocktails with pink gin

For gin fans, it does not  get more colorful than Empress-1908, a deep indigo hued gin that turns a simple gin on the rocks dark purple, a gin and tonic lilac and, depending what else you mix with it, multiple shades of pink or blue.

 

Do not  let its pretty color fool you into thinking this gin packs a light punch, as its alcohol content is 42.5% alcohol by volume or 85 proof.

According to Empress , the gin is micro distilled in small batch copper-pot stills and made with all natural ingredients and no artificial colors or stabilizers. That does mean, however, that while the flavor will last forever, the indigo hue will not. So, Empress 1908 recommends you finish the bottle within a year of purchase and store it in a cool, dark place to keep it looking vibrant.

 

You can purchase Empress 1908 at liquor stores in 26 states or online nationwide from a variety of websites. Keep in mind that some states do not allow the purchase of alcohol online, so be sure you are allowed to order where you live.

Take a look at three beautiful cocktails you can make with just a few ingredients..
