@dawnofthedelicious brings us a deliciously sippable ombré creation. Featuring fragrant elderflower liqueur, blueberries, and Empress 1908 Gin, the 'Respect Your Elder' is giving us all the springtime feels!
In a glass, start by adding the blueberry reduction*. Then, add crushed ice. Follow by floating 1 oz of Empress 1908 Gin. Next, float the elderflower liqueur. Top with 4 oz of soda water, and layer the final 1 oz of Empress 1908 Gin on top. Garnish, stir, and enjoy! For the blueberry reduction, combine 1 pint of clean blueberries and about 1/4 cup honey in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir periodically. As the blueberries start to soften, pop them with the back of a large spoon. Once all the blueberries are popped, remove from heat and strain out the blueberry skins. Allow to cool before using. Store any leftovers in the fridge!
