So it’s only natural that we should be sipping it at happy hour, too. Sure, you could DIY a delicious beverage with a pint of blackberries and a cocktail muddler, but a new batch of lilac-colored gins makes your job much easier.
And don’t worry, the buzzy beverages have zero weird or scary food colorings added.
Our favorite, Empress 1908 Gin, is tinted with a flower called butterfly pea blossom. It changes color from indigo to pale pink when you add citrus or gin, resulting in ombré lilac G&T’s that astonish us (and our guests) every single time.
