@takestwoeggs' Empress Grapefruit Yuzu Highball is layered to perfection with a thyme simple syrup, and vibrant citrus notes. A must-add to your spring and summer cocktail lineup!
Add the grapefruit juice, syrup, and soda (in this order) to a highball glass full of pellet or crushed ice. Gently float Empress 1908 Gin on top, and garnish with a dried grapefruit slice and thyme sprig. Stir before enjoying! *For the syrup, heat ½ cup of water and ½ cup of granulated sugar in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Stir until combined. Add 5 sprigs of fresh thyme, lower the heat, and let simmer for 5 minutes. Strain and let cool before using.
