What’s in the Rapunzel Cocktail?
This fun drink is really easy to make with only a few ingredients and it is a delicious twist on a classic mojito.
Mojitos are a traditional cocktail that originated in Cuba and are typically made with rum, lime and sugar.
In fact, it’s one of the greatest cocktails of all time, in our opinion!
We substitute Empress Gin instead of the classic rum in the Rapunzel cocktail to give it the pretty purple color.
Empress Gin is made with a blend of botanicals that give it a delicate flavor and make it really unique. Whenever I made a cocktail with Empress, it is always a huge hit at any party.
The first time we sipped this Tangled cocktail we fell in love! Here’s how to make it.
If you are familiar with the Disney version of Rapunzel, then you know her dress is purple so of course we needed a purple ingredient for this drink.
To make this drink you need:
- Empress Gin

- Lime Juice
- Simple syrup
- Soda Water
- Mint Leaves
