Four Easy and Exciting Gin Cocktails, with No Tonic Involved - World Gin Day Inspiration
This Saturday is World Gin Day. We’re so excited for it, we decided to share our favourite gin cocktails with you. The official festivities might be a few days away but it’s always better to be well-prepared, so you can even try out these appetising cocktails beforehand! Or why not celebrate twice?
Passion Fruit, Lemon and Gin Collins
If you're into something a little sweeter, gin is the right spirit for you - and there are all sorts of recipes out there. Our favourites for summer are definitely ones including passion fruit!
Ingredients (makes 2 servings)
60ml dry gin
60ml fresh lemon juice
the pulp of 2 passion fruits
30ml sugar syrup
2 handfuls ice cubes
soda water to top
Combine ingredients and shake or stir well
Pour, top up with soda water and garnish with lemon
Serve and enjoy!
Equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari make this a simple classic. With its bittersweet taste, the Negroni is a beloved drink and certainly one of our favourite cocktails.
1 part gin
1 part Campari
1 part vermouth rosso
Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake well
Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with a twist of orange peel and enjoy!
A total crowd-pleaser and one of the best drinks to make (and have) is the Elderflower Collins. For an extra kick, BBC Good Food recommend swapping the soda for prosecco, and we can certainly get behind that.
20ml lemon juice
10ml sugar syrup
10ml elderflower cordial
Lemon to garnish
Add all ingredients but soda to a shaker filled with ice and shake well.
Strain into a glass and top with soda
Garnish with lemon (lime works well too) and enjoy!
As simple as you can get, the Gimlet only has two ingredients, but aims to please and succeeds. With its amazing variety, you're sure to find a favourite flavour!
25ml cordial of your choice
Shake or stir, serve, and enjoy! So simple, yet so delicious.
