An emerald is believed to reveal the truth of a lover’s oath, and the love found in romeo’s gin is undeniable. With their perfect marriage of botanicals and craftsmanship, I wanted to create a cocktail that highlighted the harmony found within the bottle. I decided to pair the almond and lavender notes of the gin with basil and elderflower, with lemon and cucumber to tie the knot. The Emerald Fizz is an elevated gin & tonic at its base, just like romeo’s is a sublime gin.
