Learn everything on which Gin to choose


The gin (2 oz) is the backbone of the Fairy Belle, providing the boozy base and botanical complexity. Less gin, and you might as well be drinking fancy lemonade. More, and the delicate balance is overpowered. No gin? It's not a Fairy Belle anymore, it's a mocktail!

Elderflower Liqueur

Elderflower Liqueur (0.5 oz) imparts a subtle floral sweetness that is hard to replicate. It's like the fairy dust that makes the Belle truly magical. Too little and its enchantment is lost; too much could turn it from a Belle into a Beast.

Alex Green

Lemon Juice

Half an ounce of lemon juice cuts through the sweetness with necessary acidity for a harmonious balance. Skip it, and the drink loses its bright edge. It’s the citrusy spark that keeps the flavor profile clean and refreshing.

Mary Mitkina

Raspberry Syrup

The raspberry syrup (0.5 oz) provides a berry-licious sweetness and the dreamy pink hue. It's the ribbon on the fairy wand. Without it, the magic fades, and you're left with something less fun. Too much, and it's berry overkill.

Emma Rose

Egg White

One egg white creates that frothy, silky mouthfeel that makes each sip a cloud-nine experience. Leave it out, and the cocktail drops in both texture and aesthetics - no frothy cap to hold our glitter.

Alex Green

Edible Glitter

A pinch of edible glitter is the final flourish that takes this drink from earthbound to enchanting. It's not just garnish; it's pixie dust! Without it, the Fairy Belle might not take flight in the same way.

Mary Mitkina


The ice is the unsung hero—cooling and diluting the cocktail to the perfect sippable state. As needed, because no one likes a watered-down fairy or an over-assertive ice giant.

Emma Rose

Fresh Raspberries

Three fresh raspberries offer a juicy burst of flavor and a charming garnish. They're like the Fairy Belle's three fairy godmothers—without them, the outfit is incomplete.

In case you forgot basics how to make Fairy Belle

Add your ingredients to the shaker first, then ice. Fill it up to ¾ of its capacity to ensure enough space for shaking. Hold the shaker with both hands (one on the top and one on the bottom) and shake vigorously. The shake should come from your shoulders, not your wrists.

Learn everything on how to shake

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.

Garnishing a bar drink depends on the type of garnish and the cocktail. Generally, it involves preparing the garnish (like cutting a citrus wheel or picking a sprig of mint), and then adding it to the drink in a visually appealing way (like perching it on the rim or floating it on top).
