Serves: Charlene McGee & Cream Soda
Charlene McGee is a juniper spirit inspired by the Scandinavian culinary tradition of smoking. The spirit has base notes of fresh juniper, fruity blackberries, and resinous, fragrant juniper sap that leaves a smooth, smoky finish. Unlike a traditional heavily peated spirit, this is a smoother and lighter flavor experience with smoke.
2 parts* Charlene McGee
3 parts Cream Soda
An orange wheel
Pour the spirit in a glass over ice
Top up with Cream Soda and mix
Garnish with an orange wheel
*We recommend using around 50ml of our spirit and 75ml of mixer, depending on individual preferences. We also suggest using larger ice cubes to delay dilution.

How to drink Empirical: Fuck Trump & Watermelon
Fuck Trump and His Stupid Fucking Wall is a refreshingly smooth, warm, vegetal tasting habanero spirit made from a base of pearled barley, Belgian saison yeast, and koji. Through low-temperature vacuum-distillation, we removed capsaicin, the painfully spicy active component in the chilies, to preserve the pleasantly floral and fruit-forward notes typically hidden in habaneros.
