G&Ts & Cocktails

Serving York Gin

While we love a York G&T, all six of our gins make wonderful cocktails too.
From Negronis to Espresso Martinis, Corpse Revivers to Tom Collins, we hope these easy recipes will inspire you.
You don't need much kit - and they don't take forever to make. Happy experimenting!

Perfect serves: G&T

For a perfect G&T, use large chunks of ice (they don't melt as quickly). Add York Gin, premium tonic and your favourite garnish.

Recommended tonics and garnishes

York Gin London Dry: Fever-Tree Light. Curl of lemon peel or juniper berries.
York Gin Roman Fruit: Fever-Tree Mediterranean or Lemonade. Dried hibiscus or fresh strawberries and raspberries.
York Gin Outlaw Navy Strength: Fever-Tree Indian Tonic. Black pepper.
York Gin Old Tom: Fever-Tree Light. Pink peppercorns or Star Anise.
York Gin Grey Lady: Fever-Tree Light. Orange peel.
York Gin Chocolate & Orange: Fever-Tree Light or Clementine. Slice of fresh orange or cocoa nibs.

Perfect serves: Cocktails

Each Friday at 12.30, York Gin joins the Victoria Charles Show on YorkMix Radio to make a Quick Cocktail.
We also make a two-minute video to inspire your cocktail making!

English Martini

A classic English cocktail.

  • Ice in a martini coupe glass
  • Muddle (crush) rosemary in a separate glass or shaker
  • Large measure of York Gin Old Tom
  • Elderflower liqueur
  • Shake together...
  • Discard ice from the martini glass and strain your cocktail into the cold glass.
  • Garnish with rosemary

Strawberry Smash

We went to the brand new SOPHIE bar on Lendal Bridge to make this fantastic refreshing cocktail.

  • Fresh strawberries
  • York Gin Roman Fruit
  • Lemon juice
  • Sugar syrup (gomme), ice, basil, soda water
Muddle (crush) the strawberries, gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a highball, finish with ice, basil and top up with soda water.

The Bramble

  • 50ml York Gin Outlaw
  • 25ml lemon juice
  • 10ml sugar syrup
  • 20ml Chambord
  • Blackberries, cubed ice, crushed ice
Muddle (crush) a couple of blackberries in a tumbler. Shake gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and cubed ice in a cocktail shaker. Fill the tumbler to the top with crushed ice. Pour gin mixture over the crushed ice. Finally, drizzle Chambord over the top, creating a marble effect. Garnish with lemon peel or a blackberry.

Clover Leaf

  • 50ml York Gin London Dry
  • 20ml red fruit cordial
  • 15ml raspberry syrup

  • Raspberries, ice
Muddle (crush) a couple of raspberries in the bottom of the shaker to release the juice. Add gin, cordial, syrup and lemon juice followed by the egg white. Shake the ingredients before adding the ice - to emulsify the egg for a creamy cocktail. Add ice to the shaker and shake again. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with raspberries.

Chocolate & Orange Negroni

  • 25ml York Gin Chocolate & Orange
  • 25ml Campari
  • 25ml red vermouth

Pour the three ingredients into a tumbler full of ice. Top up with soda to make a longer drink. Garnish with burnt orange twist.

Salty Dog

  • 4 blueberries
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 100ml grapefruit juice
