Lady of the Empire

About two years ago I created this cocktail for a few friends of mine who claimed they did not like gin. They have been converted, and if you try this recipe, it is sure to convert you too.

Lady of the Empire

1 1/2 oz Empire London Dry Gin
3/4 oz Triple Sec
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1 tsp simple syrup

Ice

Place the first four ingredients in a metal cocktail shaker
Shake vigorously with ice until the outside of the metal is frosted
Strain into a chilled wine or cocktail glass

Garnish with a slice of Lemon or Lime

Enjoy!

    I am a gin lover and thought this drink was very nice but masked the gin too much for me (I like a gin-dominant flavour.) My second time I backed the triple sec and lemon juice down to 1/2oz each which turned out to be too little. Oh well, third time’s a charm!
