A sublime gin and tonic can be mood-changing—and now colour-changing, too. Take your spirits from blue to pink in a splash by making cocktails with all-natural Empress 1908 Gin. The indigo-coloured potion from Victoria Distillers is a collaboration with Victoria’s newly renovated Fairmont Empress Hotel. Taking botanical inspiration from high tea at the Empress, the spirit is made with butterfly pea blossom that transforms when it meets acidic lime or tonic. Mix the award-winning grapefruit and rose-scented gin with Fentiman’s tonic, as they do at the distillery’s seaside Sidney, B.C. tasting room, and look like a master mixologist in one colourful gesture.
