THE STORY BEHIND THE COCKTAIL NAME
"The Queen My Mother" is a toast to exactly that my mother the queen in my life. I wanted to create a drink for her after all she's done for me. From raising me, to being my main support and always pushing me to be the best I can be. I chose Sipsmith Gin as she loves a good gin and it just so happens that The Queen My Mother was born in England much like Sipsmith Gin. I wanted to work with ingredients that my mother loves but also would accentuate the flavour profile of Sipsmith Gin. My mother is a sweet tooth hence the lemon curd, which matches perfectly with the lemon aromas of Sipsmith Gin. She also loves a hike and is always talking about the smell of the native pines in Australia, which is where the pinecone soda comes in highlighting those flavours of juniper. A few drops of house made juniper tincture balance my drink. I present to you “The Queen My Mother” the queen in my life.
