“This cocktail is the ultimate spring/summer patio crusher! I was inspired by the watermelon distillate used in romeo’s gin X to welcome in the wonderful change of the season. The Watermelon Sugar, emphasizes these notes with the tartness of the pomegranate, brightness of the citrus, and pop of acidity coming from the sherry. The cherry bitters add a herbaceous note to balance the brightness with subtle notes of gentian and liquorice. Who doesn’t love a pink drink!” –Katie Ingram
Duality, protest, non-conformism, all symbols at the heart of the Quebec artist Miss Me’s work, but also very present in the co-creation between her and romeo’s gin: romeo’s gin X, the anti-pink gin. For the International Women’s Day, we want to highlight 10 amazing Canadian women bartenders for whom these concepts are commonplace. They are showing us their vision of the #girlydrinks through meaningful, creative and decadent cocktails, that can be enjoyed by both men and women. They also share their stories as women in the industry, without censorship. Pink but not what you think. For all the recipes and the interview, click here.
