Gin Ginger Lime

Gin, Ginger & Lime Drizzle Cake! 😍

This is a twist on the classic drizzle cake, and was inspired by drinking Gin & Ginger Ale! This recipe is everything you want from a drizzle cake and so much more…


Jawbox Gin & Merchant’s Heart ginger ale pair together perfectly. Who knew gin could go so well with ginger?! Try adding them both to your drizzle topping and pour over the warm cake… it smells amazing! I couldn’t wait to try a slice warm and it was so delicious, however I actually found the ginger came through much more the day after.

Gin, Ginger & Lime Drizzle Cake Recipe

  • 200g Unsalted Butter

  • 175g Golden Caster Sugar

  • 3 Free Range Eggs (beaten)

  • 200g Self Raising Flour

  • 2 heaped tsp Ground Ginger
  • 30ml GIN (we recommend Jawbox).

  • Grated Stem Ginger (around 3-4 balls)
  • Zest of 2 Limes


For the Drizzle Topping

  • 150g Granulated Sugar
  • Juice of the 2 Limes

  • About 30ml Ginger Ale (we recommend Merchants Heart)

  • 25-50ml GIN (Add as much as you like!)

  • An extra chopped ball of stem ginger


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees, grease and line loaf tin.

  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add the beaten eggs slowly, alternating between a bit of flour each time. Continue to do this until you get to the last bit of flour. Add in your ground ginger to this and mix well.

  3. Stir in the grated stem ginger and lime zest.
  4. Loosen the mixture a little with your gin! Add as much as you need (but 30ml should be about right!) Bake for 50 minutes (or until a knife comes out clean).

  5. Mix all the drizzle ingredients together.

  6. After the cake is out the oven and still warm, poke holes all over and pour over the drizzle! You may need to spoon out the ginger chunks. Grate a little more lime zest over the top if you like.

  7. Leave to cool, slice and enjoy!
