3 Easy Gin Cocktail Recipes

Recipe | 3 Easy Gin Cocktails to Make at Home

Gin is by far my favourite spirit of them all. But there’s more to life than just a classic gin and tonic! Looking to shake up our weekend gin routine, we decided to try out these 3 easy gin cocktail recipes.

The recipes below are adapted from the book GIN: Shake, Muddle, Stir. This nifty little book is filled with over 40 gin-based cocktail recipes. It also gives an intro to some of the biggest gin and tonic brands that have emerged over the years, including some that we tried for the first time at our local Gin Festival.

Pink Grapefruit Collins

The classic Collins gets a tangy twist with added grapefruit juice. Complete with a dash of sugar to sweeten and sprig of mint to garnish.

  • Gin – 60ml
  • Pink grapefruit juice – 60ml
  • Tonic water – to top up
  • Light brown sugar – 1 tsp
  • Mint – to garnish

Beach House

This tropical tipple is light, sweet and refreshing. A bit like a pina colada / G&T fusion. But be warned – it’s incredibly easy to drink!

  • Gin – 60ml
  • Lime juice – 15ml
  • Coconut water – to top up
  • White sugar – 1 tsp
  • Lime or lemon – to garnish

  • Lime juice – 10ml
  • Elderflower cordial – 10ml
  • White sugar – 1 tsp

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
