The Botanicana

The Botanicana Cocktail by East Imperial
  • 30ml / 1 fl oz Navy Strength Gin
  • 7.5ml / ¼ fl oz Italicus
  • 5ml / ⅙ fl oz Coffee Fernum*
  • Top with East Imperial Yuzu Tonic
  • Navel Orange Coin

*To make the coffee fernum: blanch almonds in water overnight, blend them with lime zest, lime juice, sugar, ginger, almond extract, cinnamon and touch of gin. After making the syrup infuse it with coffee beans.

Add all ingredients except the Yuzu Tonic into a tall glass and fill with quality ice. Then simply top with East Imperial Yuzu Tonic. For this edition of the Botanicana, we have used Lighthouse Hawthorne Edition Gin. This cocktail is simple in looks but incredibly complex in taste.
