Empress Martini Recipe

This dry and very colorful martini features Empress 1908 Gin.

Empress 1908 Gin is handcrafted in small-batch copper-pot stills. The gin includes a signature blend of black tea and butterfly pea blossom, which gives the gin a natural indigo color.

Empress 1908 Gin is a collaboration between the Fairmont Empress Hotel and Victoria Distillers.


2 oz Empress 1908 Gin
0.5 oz Lillet Blanc


Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass filled with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon, orange, or grapefruit.
