Easy Weekend Gin Cocktails

If you love gin cocktails at the weekend, you need to try both of these easy recipes! A Gin Old Fashioned using the wonderful Greensand Ridge Rye Cask Gin, as well as an Aromatic G&T with Ekobryggeriet Nordic Bitter Tonic. Delicious!

Greensand Ridge Rye Cask Gin is absolutely perfect in an Old Fashioned. I didn’t know how simple it was to make at home before! You just need to buy some Angostura Bitters, which you can get in most supermarkets.

Gin Old Fashioned Recipe

  • 1 cube or tsp sugar (I used demerara)
  • 2 – 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Splash of water
  • 50ml Greensand Ridge Rye Cask Gin
  • Twist of orange peel
  • Ice

Put the sugar to the bottom of glass, then add the bitters over it. Splash in a drop of water and stir until the sugar looks a little dissolved.

Add half of the gin to the glass and then stir until the sugar has now fully dissolved. Fill the glass with ice, then add the rest of the gin.

Stir once more and garnish with the orange peel. Enjoy!



If you like trying out new combinations of garnishes, I can really recommend this one! This “Aromatic G&T” with Greensand Ridge London Dry Gin and Ekobryggeriet Nordic Bitter Tonic is just wonderful with a fresh bay leaf and some juniper berries. It looks pretty in the glass as well as tasting super fresh!

Aromatic G&T

Add the gin and tonic to a large glass with plenty of ice. Serve with the bay leaf and juniper berries. Delicious!
