In tarot, The Emperor represents the breadth of our experience as well as triumph of wisdom. In this cocktail, the darkness of darjeeling represents experience, while notes of cherry and violet offer passion and energy for life.
IV: The Emperor:
Infuse tea into 750 ml (one bottle) of Aria Portland Dry Gin. Let it sit for two hours at room temperature, stirring occasionally. Strain out the tea.
Combine Aria Portland Dry Gin with lemon juice, Creme de Violette, Luxardo, and bitters in a shaker over ice. Shake hard until the exterior of the shaker tin is frosty. Strain into chilled coupe glass and garnish with a lemon peel.
