This is definitely one of our favorite cocktail recipes. Not only does it taste amazing and is so incredibly refreshing, but it also serves as entertainment with its color changing magic.
We specifically use Empress 1908 Gin for this cocktail because it contains the essence of butterfly pea blossom, a Southeastern Asian flower that changes the color of the gin from a beautiful violet-blue color and to a light pink when an acidic ingredient is added.
While you can absolutely use your favorite gin to make this cocktail, we love the color change! Seriously, this is not sponsored at all. We just love it! Pair the show with the refreshing flavors of gin, lime, blackberry and mint, and you will have yourself quite an enjoyable experience.
Well, a Gin Rickey is a cocktail that is made with gin, lime juice, and seltzer water and typically served in a highball or Collins glass.
The drink is named after Colonel Joe Rickey who was said to have first requested it at his favorite Washington D.C. Bar, Shoomaker’s in 1883. While rickeys can be made with various types of alcohol, the Gin Rickey tends to be the most popular and our personal favorite!
Making the best blackberry and mint Gin Rickey requires just a few ingredients! We can't express it enough how incredibly refreshing this drink is! Seriously, summer in a glass. Here's what you need:
Don’t be afraid to alter the recipe and ratios of ingredients based on your preferences. If you prefer boozy drinks, by all means, pour a heavy hand of gin and get down with your bad self! If not, you’re still cool, add some more syrup or lime juice depending how much sweetness you like. We don’t judge!
We hope you enjoy this refreshing and citrusy blackberry and mint Gin Rickey.
Cheers and drink well!
This is a gorgeous gin cocktail that tastes as great as it looks with the hints of blackberry, mint and lime that elevate the gin to refreshing heights. The perfect drink for those looking to impress guests with both aesthetics and flavor.
