I’ve been getting a little bored with the usual cocktails, and a new bottle of Empress 1908 Gin has given me the motivation I needed to try some new cocktail recipes! I decided to make the Q1908 cocktail (from the Empress Gin website), as well as come up with a cocktail of my own.

Gluten is one of my best friends. As in, any talk of gluten-free anything and I will slowly back out of the conversation.
