The 4 Easiest Gin Cocktails to Make at Home
Are you tired of the usual gin and tonic? There’s actually many other things you can combine with gin to shake things up and try something new. Gin is quite versatile and can go well with a wide range of flavours to create interesting tastes that will satisfy any palate. Who knows? The next cocktail you make with a Bloom Strawberry Cup Gin could be everyone’s next favourite.
Don’t know where to start? We’ve listed some quick and easy gin cocktail recipes that you can make in just a few minutes. It includes a few classics and some modern cocktails that you can try making the next time you buy gin online. Let’s get started:
To the untrained eye, any drink in a cocktail glass is a ‘martini’. But there is only one authentic martini—and gin is its crucial ingredient. If you keep having vodka-based or cream-filled and fruity martinis and you want to try something new, then this is the cocktail that you should definitely try.
A timeless cocktail, the classic gin martini is simple: Dry vermouth and gin mixed in proportions of your choice, best stirred, shaking optional. It can also serve as the base for making other cocktails. Because it can be made to suit your own taste buds, it is considered the ultimate fine drinking experience.
To make this classic, start with 60ml of gin and then add as much dry vermouth as you like. The more vermouth there is, the more herbal the cocktail will be. Stir to taste and garnish as you like.
Feeling adventurous? Get a bottle of Bloom Strawberry Cup Gin and the classic gin martini can easily become a fantastic summer drink.
Do you want something lighter than the classic gin martini during the summer? This is where Gimlet comes in. Gin and lime simply work together, and you can even make it using an alternative to fresh lime juice. Try making it with simple syrup and lime, with homemade lime cordial, or heavily sweetened lime juice. Keep in mind that this cocktail needs a sweetener to offset the tartness of the lime.
To make this cocktail, you’ll need 50ml gin and 25ml cordial. Pour a ratio of two parts gin to one part cordial in the glass, stir, and pour into a coupe. Garnish if you like!
Bartender Adam Berbach created this drink in Washington, D.C. and it became famous when it was included in a book by Derek Brown. It uses three ingredients and it’s simple to make. After you buy gin online, stir it with Peychaud’s bitters and Barolo chinato with ice, strain, and garnish with brandied cherry. That’s it.
From Saunders comes this gin cocktail that is worthy of becoming a modern classic. It’s like a Mojito and a Moscow Mule. You will need lime juice, muddling mint, and simple syrup. Add gin and top it off with homemade ginger beer. Garnish with a mint sprig.
