You may not know there is one but, with World Gin Day coming up on Saturday June 11, we’ve made a list of 5 Gin cocktails you have to make to celebrate. 
Pictured: A Bee's Knees cocktail in a tall stem glass with a lemon twist garnish. Behind this is a cut lemon, honey in a little sauce dish and a bottle of Heathcote Gin.


Born in the prohibition era, this cocktail is made from gin (duh), fresh lemon juice and honey all shaken up and served with a lemon twist. 

A little preparation is required to make this drink, but nothing too difficult. 

Honey Syrup: 

¼ cup Honey 

¼ cup Water 

In a small pot add your honey and water and put on medium heat, bring to a slight simmer and stir until the honey has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let syrup cool. 


50 ml Gin 

20 ml Lemon juice 

15 ml Honey syrup 


In a chilled cocktail shaker filled with ice add gin, lemon juice and your cooled honey syrup. Cover and shake well. Pour into a chilled coupette glass and garnish with a lemon twist. 


This is a great little drink if you’re new to drinking gin, it’s super refreshing, sweet and a little sour. We suggest adding muddled strawberries for a delicious fruity take on this classic gin cocktail. 


Pictured: Passion punch cocktail in a short stemless glass containing a fizzy orange drink with ice and an orange slice. In the background there is several whole passion-fruits  and one cut passionfruit, accompanied by a bottle of gin.

Here at Estelle, we’ve been loving passionfruit cocktails so when we saw this recipe, we knew we had to try it. 

  This is the perfect drink to share with your friends this World Gin Day. Made with prosecco, gin, soda water, Pasito soft drink and pineapple juice and lemon juice, there may be a few more ingredients to this cocktail but trust us, it is worth the effort. 


600 ml Gin 

600 ml Prosecco 

300 ml Soda water 

300 ml Kirks Pasito soft drink 

200 ml Pineapple juice 

300 ml Lemon juice 


Fill a punch bowl or your largest pitcher with the non-carbonated ingredients, gin, pineapple juice and lemon juice, and pop in the fridge to chill. When you’re ready to serve, fill the punchbowl with lots of ice, then add the prosecco, soda water and Pasito. Garnish with sprigs of mint and a passion fruit cut in half. 


Pictured: A Clover Club cocktail in a medium stemmed glass. The cocktail is a redish colour, has a foamy head on it and is garnished with 3 raspberries. In the background of the image there is frozen berries in a white ramekin a tall slim bottle of raspberry syrup and a cocktail strainer.

 Another classic Gin cocktail, we cannot go past this super aesthetic drink made up of gin, lemon juice, raspberry syrup, and egg white*.  


60 ml gin 

20 ml raspberry syrup 

20 ml lemon juice 

1 egg white (20 ml aquafaba) 


In a shaker, add the gin, raspberry syrup, lemon juice and egg white. Shake, then fill half of the shaker with ice and shake well until super cold. Strain and pour into a coupette glass (or whatever you have) and serve. 

If you are like us and love a garnish, take this drink to the next level by adding three fresh raspberries to a skewer or keep it simple with a lemon twist.   

  *The egg white helps to give this drink that foamy head, if this isn’t your thing you can always substitute it for aquafaba (aka tinned bean juice).   


Pictured: The Jam Fizz cocktail in a short stemless glass with ice and a spoon. The drink is garnished with a large frozen strawberry. In the background there is a jam jar, a sliced lemon and a bottle of gin.

Our gin version of this cocktail that’s been making the rounds on TikTok. Made up of only 4 ingredients, this cocktail is super simple, but oh so delicious. All you need is:   

50 ml Gin 

1 tbsp Raspberry jam (or your jam of choice) 

100 ml Soda water  

20 ml Lemon juice  


In a chilled cocktail shaker add jam, gin, lemon juice, fill with ice and shake well. Strain mixture into a glass with ice, top with soda water and garnish with berries or keep it simple with a lemon twist. 


Pictured: A Gin and Tonic cocktail with ice, several cucumber sliced and peppercorns in a tall glass. The background contains sliced cucumbers, two limes and a bottle of Gin and tonic.

What would World Gin Day be without a G&T?  

  I’m sure you know the drill, all you need for this classic cocktail is: 

50 ml Gin 

150 ml Tonic 

Lime wedge or garnish of your choice. 


Simply fill up a highball glass with ice, add your gin, tonic and garnish of choice and voila!   


Feeling a bit fancy? Add whole black peppercorns and a cucumber slice (or two) to bring out the juniper notes of that gin. Or try changing up your gin with a flavoured one, we’ve been loving this rhubarb and ginger flavoured gin, super subtle but takes this classic cocktail to a whole other level.  


Cheers! xx
