This weekend, millions of people traveling from far and wide will descend upon New York City to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and 50 years of LGBTQIA+ liberation via WorldPride. This ultimate finale caps the end of a six-week long series of events, parades and rallies spanning across the country—a jubilee commemorating a truly pivotal moment for our society.

For those who can’t make it to the Big Apple to partake in the action, we’ve got a cocktail at the ready for you and your Pride beverage needs.

“I really wanted to celebrate LOVE—I feel like when you’re in love, it’s like living in color,” says Mercer, who’s the chief mixologist of the property. “Everything is bright and alive, so I wanted the cocktail to communicate the vibrancy of love through colors. The cocktail is nuanced with the flavors of summer and the passionfruit really celebrates the passion and freedom of PRIDE.”


1 1/2 ounces Empress Indigo Gin
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce apple rosewater
1/2 ounce St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
1/2 ounce lemongrass syrup
Passion fruit pearls, for serving
Coconut/ginger blue foam, for serving
Unicorn lollipop, for serving

2. Fill a Collins glass with passion fruit pearls and fresh ice; strain cocktail over ice and top with foam and lollipop.
