Empress Rose 75
If you've been around for a while you know I absolutely love butterfly pea flower tea. It's stunning blue hue that shifts to a gorgeous pink when citrus is added is just *chef's kiss*. It's straight up magical! So when I saw a butterfly pea flower gin showing up everywhere on TikTok I knew I had to get my hands on some.
Making cocktails has become a fun pastime for me during this pandemic (hello, who else is spending 24/7 at home haha). This cocktail is the perfect, refreshing sip to welcome spring. Floral, tart, & sweet- you'll go back to it over and over again.
