“Water of Life” Empress Gin Dune Cocktail


  • Author: Megan Collins

Description

This delightfully blue/purple/pink cocktail, also known as a London Mule, is the perfect accompaniment to your Dune film viewing party…


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces Empress Gin
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 3 ounces ginger beer
  • 1 package (1.2 ounces) freeze-dried strawberries
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 12 limes, cut into wedges

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, grind the freeze dried strawberries until a fine dust. Place in a shallow dish with the sugar and stir to combine.
  2. Using a lime wedge, wet the rim of the glass and then coat the whole rim in the strawberry and sugar mixture.
  3. Add ice, Ginger Beer, and Lime juice to the glass.
  4. Separately, add the 2 oz of Empress Gin. The Gin is naturally blue, like the “Water of Life,” but when added to acidic liquids, turns purple then pink. Yeah… it’s pretty cool.
