Method

Take your Boston glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure add the vodka, elderflower liqueur and lychee juice to the shaker.

Using your Mexican elbow and a jigger to measure, squeeze 25ml of lime juice and add it to the shaker.

Fill your shaker with cubed ice and seal using your tin or lid, before shaking vigorously for 10-15 seconds or until your tin is very cold.

Find a highball glass and fill with cubed ice.

Using your Hawthorne strainer, strain your cocktail into the glass before filling to the top with soda water.

Garnish with a tinned lychee, serve and enjoy!

History

This is another cocktail created by our head bartender, events manager and resident cocktail chemist, Jake Rogers, this simple but elegant mixture of vodka, floral elderflower, lightly fruity lychee make a zingy and botanical sour and the addition of a dry sparkling wine transforms this cocktail into a classy welcome drink, ideal for summery events like weddings and garden parties.

The Empress is one of our house creations, designed as a spin on the Lychee Martini, as with most sour style cocktails, by simply serving the drink in a tall glass, over ice and topped with soda, the short, sharp sour is transformed into a long, mild high-ball.
