Pursuitist is thrilled to share with you the exclusive recipe for this alluring drink, a distinctive blend of flavors that is as refreshing as it is unique. Here’s how you can recreate the Purple Martin cocktail at home:

Purple Martin Cocktail Recipe:

– 1.5 oz Purple Empress Gin
– 1 tsp Thyme Tincture
– 1 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
– 1 oz Simple Syrup
– 1.5 oz Soda Water

1. In a shaker, combine Purple Empress Gin, Thyme Tincture, Fresh Lemon Juice, and Simple Syrup. Shake well over ice to properly mix and chill the ingredients.
2. Strain the cocktail into a Champagne flute, preserving the refined blend without the ice.
3. Top with soda water to add a delightful sparkle.
4. Garnish with a sprig of thyme for a touch of earthy aroma and a thin-sliced lemon wheel for a pop of color and an additional hint of citrus.

So, the next time you crave an at-home cocktail that transports you to a coastal haven, try the Purple Martin. The delightful blend of botanical gin, the tang of fresh lemon, and the aromatic touch of thyme create a summertime sipper that’s truly unforgettable.

Enjoy the Purple Martin cocktail from the comfort of your home and imagine yourself at the Weekapaug Inn, surrounded by New England’s natural charm and tranquility. Cheers!
