We make this Empress Gin cocktail with raspberries, honey, mint, lime juice, and a splash of tonic. The lime and mint give it mojito vibes (but with gin instead of rum), and the raspberries make it sweet and fruity.


Units Scale

1/4 cup raspberries

5-6 mint leaves

1.5 ounces Empress 1908 Gin

Juice of 1/2 lime

1 teaspoon honey

Splash of tonic water


  1. Add raspberries and mint to the bottom of a lowball cocktail glass and use a cocktail muddler to muddle.
  2. Add the gin, lime juice, and honey and stir to combine. 
  3. Add ice to the glass and top it off with a splash of tonic water. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve! 


If you don't have a cocktail muddler, use the back side of a fork to smash the raspberries and mint leaves. 

We use honey to sweeten this drink. You can substitute simple syrup if that's what you prefer.
