This refreshing, tropical cocktail is deliciously flavoured with a floral and juniper gin sinking into a pineapple and citrus base. Looking like a beautiful sunset the whole time, the Royal Hawaiian might be your new favourite.
1 1/2 oz (45 ml) Empress 1908 Gin
1 oz (30 ml) unsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 oz (15 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz (15 ml) orgeat syrup
pineapple wedge (optional garnish)
Add pineapple juice, lemon juice, and orgeat into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds, then strain into a crushed ice filled collins glass.
Gently pour gin on top so that it will float rather than mix in. Garnish and serve.
