Easter is one of my most favorite holidays, which is why it warrants a specialty cocktail! This Easter specialty cocktail is so festive, yummy and pairs well with pretty much any food!
Here’s a fun tip too, since you may not be able to celebrate today with your family today, send them this recipe, call them up and have a virtual Easter Martini
- 4 oz. Empress gin (hailing from Victoria, BC, this gin is made with 8 different botanicals but gets its color from butterfly pea blossoms!)
- 1 oz. dry vermouth
- Lemon for garnish.
Start by cutting a wedge of lemon, squirt a bit of the fresh juice into the cocktail shaker (this is key and adds a little something extra to the drink). Fill the cocktail shaker with ice, pour in vermouth and gin and shake, shake, shake it up (are you singing a Rooney song right now?). Pour martini into a chilled glass, garnish with a slice of lemon rind!
Happy Easter and enjoy this festive cocktail.
