Empress Gin has a stunning color. For this drink there is no substitution on the liquor merely for the color. The light purple you get with this drink reminds me of starfall and the colors that our characters see in the sky. It’s such a hopeful time and it’s truly a wonderful moment for Feyre. I think it’s when she truly begins to forgive herself and I love that a very light drink can represent that.
-2oz Empress Gin
-1oz fresh lemon juice
-¾ ounce egg white
-Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice
-shake and strain to remove ice
-shake again without ice
-fine strain into glass

Cheers Factor: 4/5
Pairing: Faerie Wine
This is what I imagine the wine Feyre drinks at the Summer Solstice would taste like. Slight warning it uses the whole bottle of champagne so you can share with friends...or not I’m not here to judge you.
-1 bottle of Champagne chilled (I used Lamarca Prosecco it achieves the same purpose and just depends on which type of sparkling wine you prefer)
-1 bottle of ginger ale (2 liter)
-2 10oz bags of frozen strawberries
-Combine ingredients in pitcher or punch bowl serve and enjoy

Watch as the secrets of what is happening in this foreign land entangle themselves with Feyre’s life and she finds herself as the one who could potentially save the man she loves and his entire species.
