Cocktails Fit for a Queen

Have the royal wedding on your mind?  Celebrate the nuptials (or, celebrate Friday!) with a distinct British spirit, Bombay Sapphire Gin!  Its natural elegance and timeless sophistication make it a perfect option for any of your upcoming events or parties.  Ten unique botanicals from around the world are blended for a flavor not comparable to other options on the market.  The London Dry Gin compliments a wide variety of mixed cocktails fit for Queen Victoria herself who graces the Bombay bottle.

Celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday month of May with The Queen's Bouquet:

1.5oz Bombay Sapphire
4 mint leaves
3 myrtle leaves
4 blackberries
1/2 oz honey syrup
Muddle all and build/stir through with cranked ice in a stemmed rocks glass.  Garnish with a blackberry and sprig of myrtle.

For something a bit more princely, try The Windsor Tonic:

1.5oz Bombay Sapphire
1/2oz Martini and Rossi ROSSO
3 freshly cut slices of orange
Top with Fentimans Tonic Water
Build all with ice and garnish with an orange twist.

For anyone with ring envy over Kate Middleton's sapphire stunner, Bombay's Royal Sapphire serves as a soothing substitute:

1oz Bombay Sapphire
1/2oz elderflower cordial or liqueuor
1/2 oz lemon juice
4 mint leaves
Shake all, double strain and serve in a champagne flute.  Top with Martini Prosecco/Champagne.  Garnish with an edible flower.
