Last week I was invited to a Gordon’s Gin event in London. With Christmas just around the corner, I was very keen to learn how to make quick and easy cocktails at home and luckily that’s exactly why Gordon’s has teamed up with World-Class mixologist Jamie Jones to create its “Festive Gin Cocktails”. We learned how to make three classic Gin cocktails that can easily be replicated in your own home and then stored in your fridge to serve later. You will look like the hostess with the most-ess when you have these cocktails ready to go, maximum impact with minimal effort!

While at the event I also got to take a tour of all 4 botanicals that Gordon’s use to make their Gin. Gordon’s using a combination of four simple botanicals: juniper, Angelica root, licorice, and coriander. Not only did I get to smell and taste all these flavors, the night also included Gin doughnuts, Gin marshmallows and of course tons of Gin cocktails made right in front of me!

Festive Cocktails with Gordon’s Gin

Here are the three cocktails I learned how to make:

Hot Gin Punch

Festive Cocktails with Gordon’s Gin


–        40ml Gin

–        100ml cloudy apple juice

–        15ml lemon juice

–        10ml Tio Pepe Sherry

–        20ml sugar syrup

–        Cinnamon

–        Star anise

–        Nutmeg

–        Cloves

–        Butter


  • Simply add all ingredients into the pan and place on a low heat until there’s a light simmer, similar to heating milk
  • Strain through a fine strainer into a tea/coffee cup
  • Garnish with a cinnamon stick and star anise

Bees Knees


–        50ml Gin

–        20ml lemon juice

–        15ml honey syrup

–        Egg white


  • Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake hard so it’s thoroughly mixed
  • Strain into a Martini glass with a lemon zest garnish

Gin & Tonic



– 50ml Gordon’s gin

– Freshly bottled tonic

– Cubed ice

– A wedge of lime to garnish

– 1.9 units of alcohol


  • Fill a chilled highball glass with fresh ice cubes. Pour 50ml of Gordon’s gin over the ice and top up with chilled tonic. Gently squeeze a wedge of lime into the glass before dropping it in, then give it all a final stir. It’s a great way to begin any occasion.  Serve in a highball glass.
