Get juicy with these orange and gin cocktails

Zesty, fruity, rich and refreshing. Nothing quite quenches your thirst like an orange flavoured cocktail. Especially when mixed with the clean, bold flavours of gin.

 

From orange juice to fruity liqueurs, there’s plenty of ways to put the citrus in your citrus cocktail. But our favourite way has to be with Beefeater Blood Orange. Back in 1876, our founder, James Burrough hand-selected oranges from London’s Covent Garden market to create an orange flavoured gin. And we’ve been inspired ever since.

 

So whether you’re after a light and fruity summer recipe, or a warming citrus winter drink, here’s our favourite orange gin cocktails to squeeze and serve.

 

 

ALL GIN COCKTAILS

Orange, ginger and fresh lime come together in this super refreshing gin cocktail, perfect for summer sipping. Our orange flavoured gin spirit offers just a hint of fruity sweetness, whilst ginger ale and lime juice bring light spice and zest.

orange negroni

A classic Negroni already has a hint of orange thanks to the bitter, citrus notes of Campari. But if you want extra zest, make sure to try this new variation made with orange gin and Italian bitters.

 

The Blood Orange Negroni is as much a hit during summer as it is for winter cocktail hour. Stir over ice and garnish with an orange wedge for year round drinking.

Warm up during the winter months with a steaming hot glass of Blood Orange Punch. It’s an extra fruity alternative to mulled wine for those who prefer a sweeter, spicier serve.

 

Fresh lemon, anise, ginger and cinnamon are steeped in a teapot with boiling honey water before being mixed with Beefeater Blood Orange. Simple, comforting and perfect for sipping in front of the fire.

The iconic mix of Gin and Juice is a smooth two-part drink that couldn’t be easier to make. Choose your favourite ratio of gin and OJ to get started, serving over ice, with a straw or however you like it.

 

For the best serve, we use London Dry Gin which balances a clean, juniper flavour with strong notes of citrus. The perfect spirit to mix with freshly squeezed orange juice.

Try this gin twist on a classic citrus cocktail. A traditional Cosmopolitan recipe mixes fresh cranberry with a triple sec pour to get the perfect mix of bitter and sweet. But we’re pumping up the citrus with this variation.

 

With orange flavoured gin, orange liqueur and an orange twist garnish, you can’t get more orangey than the Blood Orange Cosmopolitan.

orange blossom

Gin wasn’t always so tasty. Back in the Prohibition era, illicitly made gins were mixed with juice and other ingredients to make them more palatable, creating a bunch of new cocktails we still drink today.

 

Orange Blossom is one example, a gin and orange juice drink that also uses sweet vermouth to balance out the acidity. Shake equal parts with ice and serve.

Serve your Orange Gin Margarita in a martini glass with a lime juice and salt rim. It doesn’t get more zingy than this.
