Gin is one of the most popular liquors and is a great choice for your next cocktail party because of its flavour profile versatility.

Thanks to gin’s herbal flavour, it makes every cocktail refreshing and delightful to your taste buds. When it comes to hosting an event, including a gin based cocktail on your bar menu is a must! Given that there are thousands of cocktail recipes available, you never know which one your guests will love. Don’t worry because we have made a list of our five favourite gin cocktail recipes that you can use for your next event!

Created by the famous Dick Bradsell, the legendary bartender from London, Bramble is a great gin cocktail that you can prepare easily.

Ingredients

  • 10 ml of crème de mure
  • 20 ml of lemon juice
  • 20 ml of sugar syrup
  • 40 ml of gin
  • Lemon zest or berries for garnish

Mix gin with sugar syrup and lemon juice by shaking them in a container. Pour the mixture on top of crushed ice and sprinkle crème de mure throughout the blend. If you have any lemon zest or berries, you can use them to garnish the cocktail.


Fogcutter is a wonderful blend which combines the exquisite tastes of four different types of alcohol into one exotic cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 5 ml of sherry
  • 15 ml of almond syrup
  • 20 ml of lemon juice
  • 20 ml of brandy
  • 20 ml of rum
  • 20 ml of gin
  • 40 ml of orange juice

Combine lemon juice, orange juice, rum, brandy, and gin. Pour almond syrup into the mixture and shake it well and top it off with sherry. You can add any garnish you like to this cocktail. Make sure that you serve this cocktail with ice to your guests.


Floradora is an irresistible cocktail that is refreshing and sweet at the same time. When people used to make floradora back in the day, they used raspberry syrup as the original ingredient. However, as times have changed, they replaced that ingredient with framboise liqueur which enhances the taste tremendously.

Ingredients

  • 14 ml of crème de framboise liqueur
  • 14 ml of lime juice
  • 44 ml of gin
  • 118 ml of ginger ale

Add ice to a glass and pour lime juice, framboise, and gin into it. Top off the cocktail with ginger ale. You can also use a lime wedge as a garnish for floradora.


French 75 consists of champagne and gin (my two favourite types of alcohol), which combine to form a sublime cocktail.

Ingredients

  • 5 ml of sugar
  • 10 ml of lemon
  • 10 ml of orange liqueur
  • 10 ml of gin
  • 44 ml of champagne

Combine lemon, gin, orange liqueur, sugar, and ice and shake it well. Top off the cocktail with champagne and serve it to your guests with a lemon twist as garnish.
