10 Bridgerton-Themed Cocktails to Drink En Route to the Ball
It's clearly more than just tea that Lady Whistledown is spilling in her gossip column. The London high society that serves as the subject of the Bridgerton narrator's commentary is shrouded in an unassuming amount of scandal, power struggle, and seduction. At the heart of it all, of course, is the Bridgerton family constantly playing with the boundaries of proper social etiquette through every one of their relationships. It'll "most ardently" take a cocktail or two to keep up with all the drama and romance in this Netflix show. From The Dirty Duke Martini to The Debutante Daiquiri, we've renamed 10 drinks into delicious Bridgerton-themed cocktails that are sure to be deemed as "flawless, my dear" by Queen Charlotte herself. Keep reading to see them all now before you, let's be honest, rewatch Bridgerton again.
The Dirty Duke Martini
This dirty martini is inspired by the Duke of Hastings, who is considered one of the most eligible bachelors in London. While martinis are traditionally made "dirty" with a splash of olive brine, this one uses pickle brine instead.

Lady Whistledown’s Gossipy Gimlet
Inspired by the sharp-tongued Lady Whistledown, this gimlet is made with vodka and elderberry-infused St. Germain, which is characteristically less sweet than a typical liqueur. Its complementary lime and cucumber flavors are as refreshing as Lady Whistledown's gossipy take on aristocratic society.

The Bridgerton Brother Bramble
This four-ingredient bramble is inspired by the four Bridgerton brothers, Anthony, Benedict, Colin, and Gregory. Gin, Crème de Mûre, sugar syrup, and lemon juice are all it takes to make this delicious cocktail.
