Gin Cocktail Recipes

One of the most popular searches that bring people to my blog is Gin. I bloody LOVE the stuff! As it’s the weekend, I thought I’d post a few more gin cocktail recipes that I intend to try out very soon. I’ve been staying in a lot lately whilst we save to go away to San Francisco, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a sneaky tipple or two.

Let’s see how these all go down shall we.

Cosmic Granny

1 shot Hendricks Gin
1 shot grand marnier
1 barspoon lime
1 shot Pomegranate

Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well for 10-15 secs. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with an orange twist.

Gin and Tea

60ml Beefeater 24 Gin
75ml chilled English Breakfast Tea
20ml blackberry and lavender shrub (Recipe HERE)
10ml sugar syrup

Pour all ingredients into an ice-filled highball glass. Squeeze a lemon wedge into the glass and discard. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Recipe sourced from the Gin and Tales website.

The 12 ingredients used in Beefeater 24 are:Japanese Sencha Tea, Chinese green tea and then Seville orange peel, grapefruit peel, lemon peel, juniper, coriander seed, liquorice, angelica root, almond and orris root


40ml Gordon’s gin
25ml triple sec
20ml lemon juice|
A raspberry to garnish

Place all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake well then strain into a martini glass.
Garnish your Pink Lady with a raspberry.

Serve in a martini glass.

Cucumber-Rosemary Gin and Tonic

1 cucumber
1 lime
3 sprigs rosemary
2 oz. Hendrick’s Gin
4 oz. tonic water (preferably Q or Fever-Tree)

Peel one half of a cucumber, and slice a lime into eight wedges. In a highball glass, add three slices of peeled cucumber, 1 sprig rosemary, juice from a lime wedge and 1 ounce gin. Muddle with the back of a spoon.

Strain through a mesh strainer into a second highball glass. Add several cubes of ice, and three slices of unpeeled cucumber. Top with remaining gin and tonic, and serve garnished with rosemary sprigs.

    I want to drink every single one of these cocktails! I can’t believe there is a cocktail that combines gin & tea. It sounds insane but oddly perfect.

    I love gin too but have never had the imagination to try anything beyond a gin and tonic or gin fizz. These all sound amazing! I will definitely try the gin and tea.
