What’s in this cocktail?

The star of the show here is the Empress 1908 Gin. It is not only a very high-quality and delicious gin, but supplies the beautiful color of this cocktail.

The white chocolate liqueur balances perfectly with the striking Empress 1908 Gin, bringing just the right amount of sweetness to balance the lovely botanicals in the gin.

Adding a bit of Luxardo Maraschino Original Liqueur is subtle but rounds everything out perfectly. The vanilla extract is also a delicate touch and the flavor is necessarily in the background.
