10 Easy Gin Cocktails To Try at Home
Most of us have a bottle of gin lying about the house, I am sure. If you are ever thinking about what to do with that very bottle, I’ve created a list of a 10 easy gin recipes to try at home, from the most iconic gin cocktails to a few others with a slight twist!
For a spirit that so decimated the English population in the 17th century that laws were created to halt its production, it is quite humorous to be celebrating World Gin Day 400 years later!

It has the word French in its name, so it has to be French, right? Named for a field gun used by the French in WWI, the French 75 is the delicious combination of gin, fresh lemon juice, sugar with the very French Champagne.
Invented by Chris Jepson at the iconic Milk & Honey in London, the London Calling has become a modern day classic. This cocktail is the only one to appear on every one of their cocktail menus since it was invented! Just a dash of sherry made a Gin Sour the instant classic it is!
Last in the list is a super cute cocktail by Johnny Neill, using his extremely popular Rhubarb & Ginger Gin and a combo of orange and carrot juices, plus a splash of Aperol! Perfect with a pairing of chocolate!
