World Gin Day Recipes

Did you know World Gin Day is an annual celebration on the 11th June 2022? Make sure to have this date marked out in your diaries to ensure you enjoy a full day of gin trying, sipping, and sharing with your nearest and dearest. Gin Monkey oversees all things Gin, including setting up this annual day for us to enjoy all kinds of different gin enhanced drinks. Follow them on Instagram to make sure you keep up to date with this year’s celebrations. 

I will be keeping in the loop about this year’s World Gin Day as I am a real gin lover. I am really interested in the broad range of unique brands and the variety of flavours. Below are some of my favourite gin recipes. This ranges from a simple and delicious Gin and Tonic to a more fruitful cocktail. Be sure to tag me or Cohorted Cult in your own G&T’s on the 11th June. I look forward to raising a G&T with you to celebrate! 

A Simple and Delicious Gin & Tonic

Ingredients

1.5 or 3 ounces of Hendricks Gin 

200ml FeverTree Original Tonic Water 

Ice Cubes  

Cucumber Slices  

Method

For a G&T which you know will hit the spot, begin by pouring either a single or double shot of Hendrick Gin in a glass, with lots of ice. Top with tonic water of your choice (I love FeverTree!) Make sure you garnish with some cucumber slices, as this really brings out the flavour in the gin. If you are looking for a fresh and thirst-quenching drink, this is the one for you.  

English Garden Cocktail

Ingredients

Gin (preferably Dry Gin) – 30ml  

5 mint leaves (bruised) 

2 tsp of Elderflower Cordial 

2 tsp of lemon juice 

Cloudy apple juice (for topping up) 

1 long strip of cucumber 

Method

This is probably my favourite Gin-based cocktail. It is the perfect easy day-drinker, for a long afternoon in the sunshine.  Firstly, mix the mint leaves, gin, elderflower, and lemon juice together. Add in the apple juice and stir well. Garnish with the strip of cucumber before serving. If you can, try and use Dry Gin, this means the flavours are from natural botanicals, meaning you really tase the essence of the English Garden vibe!  

Pink Gin Iced Tea

Ingredients

1 chamomile tea bag 

100ml Pink Gin 

100ml Spiced Rum 

100ml Elderflower Cordial 

100ml Pink Grapefruit Juice 

Ice  

Thyme (for garnish) 

Method

This is for the Gin lover who wants to try something a bit different! This spicy, fresh, and fruity cocktail really makes for the perfect drink for a large crowd. Brew the chamomile tea bag with 500ml of water, remove the bag and leave to cool. Pour into a large jug with the pink gin, rum, elderflower, and juice. Add ice and thyme before serving.  

Singapore Sling

Ingredients

1 chamomile tea bag 

25ml Dry Gin 

25ml Cherry Brandy  

25ml Benedictine  

50ml Pineapple Juice  

25ml Lime Juice  

Sparkling Water (to top up) 

Ice  

Cocktail Cherry (to garnish) 

Slice of Pineapple (to garnish) 

 

Method

For a classic Gin cocktail, the Singapore Sling is perfect for a sunset downer. Pour the gin, cherry brand, and Benedictine into a mixing glass. Add in the ice, pineapple juice and lime juice and stir. Top with sparkling water and add the cherry and pineapple to garnish.
