☀️"Ode to the Yellow Empress"☀️
This cocktail, which champions #opihrorientalspicedgin , draws inspiration from the exotic spices collected on the ancient Silk Road and is a nod to Lei Zu, the wife of the Yellow Emperor.
Lei Zu is the first person to ever raise and weave silk from silkworms, which swiftly became a coveted material all the way in the West, and thus the Silk Road was born.
It is perhaps appropriate then that this #opihrgincocktail draws inspiration from the woman who arguably inspired the Silk Road.
But this tribute wouldn't be complete without celebrating some of the spices and fruits traded along the mysterious route itself. •50ml Opihr Gin
•5ml Ounce Gin
•30ml Mandarin & Coriander Seed Syrup
•20ml Lemon Juice
•10ml Egg White
Garnished with ground dehydrated ruby grapefruit flesh and a yellow flower 🌼
