Even Alexios and Kassandra need some downtime. When they’re not stabbing people to death and press-ganging people into their crew, they’d settle down with this Greek-inspired rummed-up red wine cocktail.
In a city sunk into the Neath, there are few opportunities for ribaldry. The Traitor Empress cocktail, inspired by Sunless Sea’s dark mirror of Queen Victoria herself, is one of them. Made from gin, Lady Grey tea, lemon and honey, this simple libation is a source of courage for many Unterzee captains and their crew.
