Behold gin cocktail recipes that can easily be made in the comfort of your own home, castle or interplanetary spacecraft. Here are summer cocktail party ideas of the highest order!
HENDRICK’S Gin and Tonic
Must one get lost in the novelty of festive cocktail recipes? Certainly not when you know how to make a Gin & Tonic. The HENDRICK’S GIN & Tonic is as universally applicable in the frosty evenings of winter as it is in the sultry June heat. Raise a defiant glass against passing whims with the immortally refreshing HENDRICK’S GIN & Tonic.
The Greyhound can be easily made, even in the blasting madness of a July sun, but it lacks a certain something. That certain something is the flavoursome contrast of a salty rim, once so configured you have the wickedly naughty SALTY DOG.
As floral and as fizzy as the mythical carbonated gardens of Alusdusa, the FLORA DORA is a gin cocktail that is not afraid of the seductive power of the raspberry. (Come to think of it, who is afraid of the seductive power of the raspberry?). Serving suggestion: follow with a love poem beneath a meteor shower. The bartender Jimmy O’Brien created the drink for a young actor from the cast of the Edwardian musical comedy ‘FLORA DORA’; she claimed that she had already tried every cocktail, and O’Brien responded by creating this miraculous cocktail just for her.
Gin Basil Smash
Fresh and extremely refreshing, the GIN BASIL SMASH is a cocktail was invented by the charismatic Joerg Meyer.
HENDRICK’S NEPTUNIA Fizz
Other cocktails are of course desirable, but few match the outlandish wonder of the HENDRICK’S NEPTUNIA GIN Fizz. It is impossible to avoid bias when speaking of this masterpiece. Something about the ravishingly refreshing opera of flavour of the HENDRICK’S NEPTUNIA Fizz inspires lifelong loyalty. Judge for yourself, we’re extremely confident you’ll agree.
HENDRICK’S NEPTUNIA Curious Margarita
THE INCURIOUS MAY LOOK AWAY NOW. For those with an unquenchable desire for more, the Curious Margarita awaits you. This gin margarita is an utterly seductive dance of Agave Nectar, fresh lime, HENDRICK’S NEPTUNIA and the noble crisp cucumber. If it was a mythical beast it would be the Hahvyap, a mermaid with the head of a lime and the body of a cucumber. Ideal for sharing overly tall tales.

Thrill your guests
with the first sip of summer:
Banish thoughts of a complicated event to another day. Today we are thinking about cocktail ideas for a small gathering of your very closest friends. Perhaps in a garden, you meet and talk in the brilliant sunshine – sharing your usual silly jokes – is this a secret garden party? Well, you haven’t invited everyone, so it is to some extent. As the Cucumber Lemonades joyously fizz, the afternoon becomes a rip-roaring success! Not all cocktail ideas for parties need preparation; snatching the sunshine requires a carefree spontaneity (though planning to prepare a crisp, cool batch of cocktails is a marvellous idea).

The original Hendrick’s Gin, oddly infused with Rose and Cucumber.
