TASTING NOTES

OUR COCKTAIL LIST

With the world's best gin at our disposal, we're always coming up with fantastic new ways to enjoy it. You can use the box above to search our cocktail recipes by ingredient, by mixer or by name, or you can simply scroll through and see what takes your fancy. Some are classic cocktails, some are classics with a twist and some are totally new.

ALCOHOLIC COCKTAILS

Here at Gordon's®, we think any occasion, from a lazy drink in the garden to a festive cocktail party, should be shared and enjoyed responsibly. And you'll find that some of these cocktail recipes, especially those with fruity or effervescent mixers, work well without any gin at all. Why not try it and see?

THE BEST TONIC

The best gin deserves the best tonic. We recommend Schweppes - why not keep a pack of individual bottles or cans in the fridge so that you always have fresh chilled tonic to hand?

CHAMPAGNE

While it's never quite the same, Cava or any decent dry sparkling wine will do at a push.

FRESH FRUIT

Sliced, wedged, juiced, or peeled, lemons and limes are exceptionally handy things to have around. Bags of frozen berries are also great, as they're easy to store and will happily moonlight as ice cubes in appropriate drinks.

GARNISHES

A bit fiddly? Maybe. Absolutely necessary? Not always. However, in our experience, a simple garnish can really elevate a drink and show your guests that they're about to experience something special.

DO I NEED SUGAR SYRUP?

Although this is a useful thing to have, don't worry if you find yourself without. As a rule, one teaspoon of caster sugar is a good substitute for 20ml of sugar syrup.

WHAT IS MUDDLING?

A delightful way to describe what is, essentially, the simple act of gently squashing some ingredients together in the bottom of a glass, usually with sugar.
