The next step is to shake the ingredients really well. I love this part as it is fun and exciting. Serve the drink on the rocks and top it off with a lemon wedge. 

12. Thyme Apple Gin And Tonic

Before I tell you about this special gin cocktail, tell me a short story about apples and juice. I loved drinking juice made with apples, whether it was fresh or packed one, when I was little. It felt like drinking some classy alcohol which I was not allowed to have as I was too small. My likeness for thyme apple gin and tonic grew from that childhood experience. I must say that this cocktail tastes so much better than other gin cocktails I have ever tried. It hits exactly the right place. 

This drink is very refreshing and chilling. The fruit and tropical flavors are perfect enough to tease your tastebuds and satisfy your cravings.

You can garnish the cocktail with some apple slices or thyme sprigs. 

13. Gin Rickey 

Gin Rickey 

Get little Mickey with some gin rickey. I am sorry the line did not make any sense but trust me, this drink will blow your mind off. This is one of the original gin cocktail recipes that is a must-try for everyone. The interesting thing about this cocktail is that it was named after Joe Rickey, who liked to drink his bourbon with carbonated water, and one day he asked the bartender to add some lemon. The word spread and this cocktail was soon everyone’s new favorite.

Now this cocktail recipe calls for gin as a substitute for bourbon simply because of the capability of gin to combine with lemon. Very simple to make, gin Rickey is perfect if you do not want an extra sugary cocktail. You would require some good gin that will be mixed with lime juice and club soda. Make sure to add ice and finish the recipe with garnishing with some more lemons.

This cocktail’s light and herbal flavors are enough to lighten your mood. This cocktail is a perfect love potion that one can’t get over sooner.

Serve the drink after topping it with some more lavender, and enjoy.

Ki No Bi is an amazingly flavored Japanese gin, and the Ki No Bi ginger is a heartfelt cocktail recipe. I won’t speak much about this drink because once you taste it, you will definitely love it. The fresh aroma of the Ki No Bi gin is mystical and reminds me of the mist in the bamboo forest. 

The star ingredient for me in this cocktail is Ki No Bi but Mirin. Start with combining the gin with some ginger ale. Add some crushed ice and orange peel. Combine everything well. Now add the mirin in a circular motion. No need to stir and your flavorful Ki No Bi Ginger cocktail is ready to enjoy. 

17. Marmalade Daiquiri

If you want to thank someone for introducing Marmalade Daiquiri to the world, then it is obviously Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

This is one of those cocktails that perfectly fits Christmas vibes.

You can make a batch and store it in the refrigerator to enjoy it later. Use some fresh watermelon for the recipe, and when it comes to gin, go for the one with less bitter notes. 

Blend some fresh watermelon, or you can even use packed watermelon juice. Start with muddling the mint leaves in a pitcher. Once done, add the watermelon juice, lemon juice, gin, and simple syrup. I usually like less sugary drinks, so I skip the simple syrup. Stir everything well and serve it with some ice and club soda in a glass. Enjoy after adding some more mint leaves and have a sip. 

19. Herbal Gin and Tonic With Tarragon

38. Hanky Panky

As the name is very funky and quirky in itself, hanky panky is one of the best sweet gin cocktails to enjoy. With time the recipe of the hanky panky has evolved.

Now as mentioned above, you can add orange juice as well, but I use an orange twist to garnish. That is all; your cold-weather cocktail is ready to enjoy. 

39. Gooseberry Gin

Gooseberry Gin

If you really want to enjoy a different and flavorful cocktail, then you must try gooseberry gin. This is not a 5-minute cocktail recipe. This cocktail requires a lot of time and patience. The flavors come out when gooseberries are stepped for at least some weeks. 

Trust me when I say this, the longer you steep the gooseberry, the better the cocktail will taste. Just check on the mixture daily and stir so the sugar dissolves. Just get some fresh gooseberries from the market and place them in a jar after parting them into two pieces. Add gin and sugar to the same jar. Stir everything well and place the jar in a cool and dry place. 

Every day stirs the mixture so that the sugar dissolves. After some time, you can see that the gooseberries have become white, and the liquid is turning pink. You can steep the gooseberries for 2 to 3 weeks. It really depends on your personal choice. Once done, strain and serve with lots of ice.

Who said that tea cannot be fun and full of alcoholic flavors? Try the earl grey tea cocktail, and you will definitely fall in love with this version of the gin cocktail. The perfect foam of the cocktail is too tempting. The best part is that you can enjoy this cocktail with your breakfast. Try using tea infused with gin for better flavors and an easier process. You can obviously use Earl Grey tea bags and combine them with gin. 

Start with brewing the Earl Grey tea bags. While the tea is brewing, make simple honey syrup by heating honey in water. Let the syrup cool down in the fridge. Now comes the best and last step of making the cocktail. Add gin, brewed tea, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Thrown in some ice and shake. You can use lavender sprigs for the floral touch. Strain the liquid in a cocktail glass and enjoy the morning brew. 

41. The Drunk Cucumber

The Drunk Cucumber

You can make so many gin cocktails with cucumber. The addition of cucumber elevates the flavor and makes the drink more refreshing and calming. A perfect cocktail to enjoy the summer. I prefer to have this cocktail during the day to relax my mind.

42. Bramble

Bramble does not need any grand introduction. It is one of the most flavorful gin cocktails with lots of ice. The love of Bramble is never-ending.

English garden cocktail

Like Taylor, I love London boys and drinks, so one of my favorite gin cocktails is an English garden cocktail. I really fancy this cocktail because it tastes good and is a beautiful drink.

45. Green Goddess

Green Goddess

I want to rename this cocktail Greek goddess because the color is mesmerizing and Greeky. This cocktail has one of the most exotic fruit, kiwi, elderflower, and lime. If you want to enjoy a fizzy drink with some fruity and floral notes, try Green Goddess, and you won’t be disappointed.

48. Sloe Gin Fizz

The tiny sloe berries are of the same family as plums and cherries. These cute cherries, like fruits, are delicious but not suggested to eat in raw form. That is why we have this amazing sloe gin fizz to enjoy fruity alcohol with friends and family. The color of the cocktail is super hot and tempting. 

For this cocktail, get some sloe gin easily available in the market. This sloe-flavored gin is great, and other than this, you would need some lemon juice and simple syrup. Combine all the ingredients with ice in a shaker. Like all cocktails, shake them well. Fill the glass with ice and pour the cocktail. Add some club soda and garnish with some lemon wedges and cherry. 

49. Pink gin iced tea

pink gin iced tea

Who doesn’t like iced tea? Combine your iced tea with gin, and you will never return to your regular iced tea. The name says pin gin iced tea, but the color of this cocktail is super orangy. This recipe is special because of spice rum and pink grapefruit. 

Want to know how to make this recipe? Brew some tea; I prefer chameleon tea. Take a big jar and add pink gin, rum, elderflower cordial, and grapefruit juice with the brewed tea. Stir the ingredients well, and lastly, add some ice. To finish, add a sprig of thyme and enjoy the fruity and spicy pink gin iced tea.

Seventh Heaven

True to its name, seventh heaven will show you a glimpse of the good moments of your life. Seventh Heaven is perfect for a party night and is very fancy, easy to make, and vintage in flavors. Different versions of this drink can vary depending on the ratio of the ingredients. One hack to excel in this cocktail is to chill the glass beforehand and serve the drink in the same. 

Take some gin, grapefruit juice, and maraschino liqueur. Shake all the ingredients really well with some ice. Take the chilled glass and transfer the drink to the same. Garnish with some mint leaves, and you are done. 

52. The Best Gin Sour 

One of the most beautiful gin cocktails I have ever tasted, gin sour is a perfect drink to enjoy some fancy time. We all know whiskey is sour, but this cocktail is refreshing and floral. The foam in the drink is super delicious. You can use egg white, or if you want something vegan, go for some aquafaba. 

Combine gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and egg white in a shaker. Shake them as much as you can to get the desired frothiness. Add some ice and repeat the shaking step. Transfer it to a cocktail glass. That is all. Garnish with a lemon twist, and enjoy your perfect cocktail. 

53. Blueberry Gin and Sage Punch

Nothing tastes better than blueberry and gin, and it gets much better with a blend of sage. This cocktail is full of flavors and aromas. This cocktail has everything you wish for and is still very light in weight. Make a pitcher and enjoy this light-hearted gin cocktail. 

Heat a pan and add frozen blueberries, lemon juice, water, and sugar to make this amazing cocktail. Let the sugar dissolve, and the mixture comes to a simmer.

Firstly peel the grapefruit and boil the grapefruit wedges in water. As the water boils, remove from the heat and strain the liquid. Again, take some water in a pan and boil the wedges.
