Empress gin and lavender syrup cocktail is a delicious drink mixed with tonic and lavender syrup creating a very herbaceous tasty drink. Frothing egg white to top off the cocktail gives this lavender empress gin cocktail a special celebratory feel.



  • 1 oz Empress 1908 gin
  • 1 oz lavender syrup
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2-4 drops lavender bitters (more or less as preferred)
  • 1 egg white, froth until smooth and foamy
  • 1-3 oz tonic water
  • 4- 5 ice cubes
  • Cocktail sugar for rimming the glasses.


  1. Squeeze The lime juice and set aside.
  2. Wet the edges of your favorite cocktail glass with water or lime wedges. Then dip the rim into the cocktail sugar and set aside.
  3. Add empress gin, lavender syrup, bitters, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker.
  4. Add ice to the shaker, cover the lid, and shake the drink together until the shaker turns icy to the hands.
  5. Remove the top lid and pour into the rimmed glasses.
  6. Froth the egg white with a frother until smooth but not stiff.
  7. Pour the egg white froth into the drink.
  8. Add your tonic water to taste. Serve garnished with lavender sprigs, dried grapefruit wheels, butterfly pea blossom, fresh mint, a slice of lime wedge, or any of your favorite fresh herbs.

Enjoy your new favorite cocktail!


  • Use more lime juice if you like the stronger tangy sour taste.
  • Lime lemonade instead for a less zingy taste.
  • Add more lavender syrup if you want your drink a bit sweeter.
  • Use the lavender bitters with caution, as it is strong.
  • Use a small bowl to froth the egg white. A larger bowl where the end of the frother doesn't submerge makes it harder to foam up. 
  • Skip the egg white if you prefer not to have it.
  • Mix 2 colors of rock sugars for a more festive feel.
