Embarking on a journey through the world of gin cocktails is an adventure in taste, and we’ve handpicked the top ten cocktail recipes to elevate your mixology skills. Whether you’re a seasoned cocktail enthusiast or a curious beginner, these concoctions promise to tantalize your taste buds.

1. The Classic G&T

Kick off your mixology escapade with a Gin and Tonic Twist. It sounds simple but this cocktail is anything but basic. Savour the taste as you complement your favourite gin with tonic water, garnished with a slice of grapefruit or orange. We recommend Fever-Tree‘s tonic water. It lets the hero of this cocktail shine – the gin!

2. Martini Marvel

Elevate your Martini experience. Mix your favourite gin with dry vermouth in a shaker filled with ice, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist or olives for a touch of sophistication. This timeless elixir exudes elegance and, if you use our Organic Koala Gin, captures the essence of Australia’s wild botanical fusion.

3. Gin Fizz

For a quick and easy gin cocktail, indulge in a Gin Fizz. Shake together gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda water over ice, then strain into a glass. The effervescence of soda water adds a delightful fizz, making it the ideal choice for a laid-back evening with friends or a solo nightcap. For those wondering how this differs from the classic gin and tonic, soda doesn’t contain any sweeteners like tonic water does. It still allows the gin to steal the show but provides a slightly neutral to bitter undertone.

4. Negroni Nirvana

Immerse yourself in the rich and robust flavours of Negroni Nirvana. Now this one pairs perfectly with our Organic Quokka Gin, or at least we think so. Equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth create a harmonious blend. Garnish with an orange twist to enhance the sensory experience. This classic cocktail is a testament to the art of mixology, with a fruity berry front and a warm finish.

5. Gin Buck Bliss

Seeking simplicity? The Gin Buck Bliss is the answer. Mix gin, ginger ale, and a splash of lemon juice over ice. It’s a breeze to make and a crowd-pleaser at any gathering. Enjoy the simplicity and the delightful combination of flavours with every sip.

6. Tom Collins Cool Down

When the temperature rises, cool down with a Tom Collins. Combine gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda water over ice, garnishing with a cherry and a slice of lemon. This tall and refreshing drink is the epitome of summer in a glass—a delightful choice for warm afternoons and evenings.

7. Aviation Adventure

Embark on an Aviation Adventure with this classic cocktail. Blend gin, maraschino liqueur, crème de violette, and lemon juice to create a visually stunning and delicious concoction. The Aviation Adventure is a celebration of timeless flavours and cocktail craftsmanship.

8. Gimlet Glamour

Elevate your evening with the Gimlet Glamour. Mix gin and lime cordial, then strain into a chilled glass. This simple yet sophisticated cocktail showcases the crisp and clean flavours of gin. Ideal for those who appreciate a well-balanced and easy-to-master drink.

9. French 75 Elegance

Channel the elegance of a bygone era with the French 75. Combine gin, champagne, lemon juice, and simple syrup for a sparkling and celebratory drink. This cocktail is the epitome of sophistication and is perfect for marking special occasions with its sweet spiced flavour.

10. Eucalyptus Breeze

Conclude your gin journey with the Eucalyptus Breeze featuring our Organic Koala Gin. Mix gin with lemon juice and simple syrup, shaking over ice, and straining into a glass.
