5 Enticing Gin and Ginger Ale Cocktails

Whenever the opportunity presents itself for you to add some recipes to your gin cocktail recipe book, you should.

Today, we are going to be taking a look at some of our favourite gin and ginger ale cocktails, sharing them with you so that you can try as many of them as you wish to.

5 Enticing Gin and Ginger Ale Cocktails

1. Gin Buck

Keeping things plain and simple to start off with, a Gin Buck effortlessly combines two of our favourite ingredients, gin and ginger ale. Best served cool on a warm day, this is one of those refreshing cocktails that everyone should be able to make. Combine the light spice and bright citrus of Isle of Harris gin with ginger ale to really get the most out of this refreshing experience.

3. Top your glass up with your favourite ginger ale, perhaps tasting along the way to make sure that you get the perfect gin to ginger ale ratio for your tastes.
4. Enjoy your refreshing cocktail, perhaps garnishing it with a lemon twist or a lemon wedge.

2. Foghorn

A Foghorn is one of those timeless cocktails that really should be tucked away in every cocktail recipe book. First made famous in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City, this traditional cocktail can also be made with a London dry gin and a ginger ale.
