The artist I was allocated for this lovely project brought to you by romeo’s gin goes by the name of “XRAY” who is a Florida native that has lived in Montreal for the last decade. He is known for incorporating lots of colour, clean lines, cartoon’s and vibrant tropical paintings. Being a 90’s baby, which is when he started his artistry as a graffiti artist, has inspired me to create something juicy, tropical and uber refreshing. I tried to mesh his mural of Mickey Mouse made of fruit in Yorkville with his style of art all while highlighting the uniqueness and complexity of romeo’s gin. The name “Juicy” refers to the iconic 90s song by Notorious B.I.G and the juicy profile of the cocktail. This name for me tied all the ingredients, XRAY’s style, and upbringing together to create this one of one unique elixir. I hope this cocktail does justice to XRAY’s wonderful talent and vision. Cheers.
