Tempting Gin Cocktails to Try Now

July 06, 2021

Unless you live in a place blessed with warmth and sunshine all 365 days, right now you would be hard-pressed to find any blossoming flowers. Floral-inspired gins are trending, giving us permission to take a backseat in favor of petal power from varieties such as iris, hibiscus, and violet.

Gin is the reigning king of summer. It’s light, botanical, and it blends easily with all manner of juices, sodas, and, well pretty much anything else you can think of. But then, the amazing fact is it makes for fantastic, tempting & refreshing cocktails all year-'round, as well. The versatile spirit can add refreshment (such as the Gin or Gimlet & Tonic), or it can provide structure to boozier stirred drinks (such as Martinis).

Right from the sweet & simple to the sublime & complex, any of the given easy-drinking libations will refresh your soul.

  1. Gimlet:-
  2. The original recipe for a Gimlet was known as “Gin and a spot of lime.” And in the 1930s, The Savoy Cocktail Book(the exact book in which the Greyhound made its debut), the standardized recipe involves equal parts of both Gin and Rose’s Lime Juice. Nowadays, we prefer to have our drinks a touch stiffer. Thus, with time the recipe has grown more alcoholic. Now, it’s two parts of Gin to one part Rose’s lime, a right combination for keeping it light, refreshing, but not too sweet. If you ask us, it’s one of the simplest and best summer cocktail recipes available.

    The Gimlet is a combination of circumstance versus creativity, though with time it’s grinned and perfected. Its origins are at stumped when limes were mandatory rations for sailors to battle scurvy. Gin was the first choice for several sailors of that time. The combination of Gin & Lime Juice made one another more palatable and countless seamen avoided vitamin deficiency.

    As for the name, it’s from one among two places - either from a little tool used for tapping barrels of liquor on ships or from a British naval officer named Sir Thomas Gimlette, an enthusiastic adopter of the Gin-Lime combination.


    Gimlet Ingredients

    • 2 ounces of gin
    • 1 ounce of Rose’s lime juice (use 1/2 ounces of fresh lime juice and 1/2 ounces of simple syrup if you’ve got no Rose’s)
    • Lime wedge

    Gimlet Recipe

    1. Add Gin, Rose’s & ice in a shaker, and shake.
    2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
    3. Garnish with a lime wedge.
  3. New York Sour:-
  4. A clever spin on the classic New York Sour, the creation skips the red wine floater in favor of cherry cordial and orange liqueur. This cocktail is perfect for enjoying sunset lounging at the end of a long day. Go ahead, and treat yourself.


    New York Sour Ingredients

    • 2 ounces of Dorothy Parker American gin
    • 3/4 ounces of American Fruits sour cherry cordial
    • 1/4 ounces of Combier
    • 1/2 ounces of fresh lemon juice
    • Club soda, for topping
    • Garnish with a lemon twist

    New York Recipe

    1. Add all the ingredients except the club soda to a shaker fill with ice.
    2. Strain into a Collins glass that is filled with ice.
    3. Topping with club soda and garnish with a lemon twist.
  5. Beefeater London Garden Gin:-
  6. The inspiration for this expression came from the Chelsea Physic Garden, which was created to teach apothecaries and pharmacists about the medicinal properties of plants. In relation to the botanicals that are included in the brand’s classic London Dry Gin (Thyme, Juniper, Lemon Peel, Seville orange and lemon peels, angelica root and seeds, coriander seed and licorice root), master distiller Desmond Payne introduced thyme and lemon verbena. He says the latter two lend herbal and fresh dimension along with its floral character make the spirit perfect for savory cocktails such as the Red Snapper.


    Beefeater London Garden Gin Ingredients

    • 3/2 oz. of Beefeater London Garden Gin
    • 2/3 oz. of lemon juice
    • 1/2 oz. of simple syrup
    • 2-inch chunks of celery
    • Stick of celery for garnish

    New York Recipe

    1. Add the chunks of lemon juice, celery & simple syrup to a cocktail shaker, and muddle to release the celery juice
    2. Add the Gin & ice and shake until well-chilled.
    3. Double strain into rocks glass over ice and garnish with the thin stick of celery.
  7. 50/50 Martini:-
  8. The classic Martini has a storied history, although one which is pretty difficult to pin down with precision. The Dry Martini as we know it today most probably took form around the turn of the 20th century, and ever since then, it has been a popular vehicle for experimentation.

    The usual recipe of Gin, Dry Vermouth, and sometimes bitters leave a lot of room for interpretation. Go more on the Gin for a drier drink, and more Vermouth for a wetter drink. But even those wetter Martinis generally don’t give the Gin and Vermouth equal footing. For that, you must opt the 50/50 Martini.

    This variation calls for equal contributions of Gin and Dry Vermouth, yielding a drink that’s low in alcohol and far less dry than most recipes. The drink’s origin story is a fuzzy one, and it’s likely that most people in different places at various points in time experimented with a 50/50 ratio of ingredients. But the drink’s very first appearance in a cocktail book(The Savoy Cocktail Book) belongs to Harry Craddock’s.

    Like a lot of old-school drinks, the 50/50 Martini disappeared from rotation until a band of pioneering bartenders brought it back to life in the late 90s and early-20s. At Milk & Honey, Sasha Petraske served the cocktail, and at Pegu Club, Audrey Saunders put it on her menu—both located in New York. Dubbed the “Fitty-Fitty,” Pegu Club’s version featured identical measures of Gin and Vermouth, plus one dash each of Regan’s orange bitters and Fee Brother’s orange bitters. It was there at Pegu Club, where hoards of enthusiastic drinkers were 1st introduced to the 50/50 Martini’s charms.

    While making the cocktail, you have three important factors: Gin to use, Vermouth to use, and whether to add orange bitters or not. The ability to select your own adventure allows you to personalize the drink to your taste. A floral French Vermouth and London dry Gin leans traditional, while a modern, less juniper-heavy Gin paired with an herbal, more bitter Vermouth can take the recipe completely in new directions. Orange bitters are there in order to provide structure and a mild zesty note. With its lighter flavor and lower-alcohol sensibilities, the 50/50 might not be the Martini you’re used to, but it’s a Martini worth having.


    50/50 Martini Ingredients

    • 3/2 ounces of gin
    • 3/2 ounces of dry vermouth
    • 1 dash of orange bitters
    • Garnish: lemon twist

    s50/50 Martini Recipe

    1. Add the gin, dry vermouth and orange bitters to a glass fill with ice and stir until well-chilled.
    2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
    3. Garnish it with a lemon twist.
