Gin and Juice: A Great Combination for Mixing Gin Cocktails

The cocktail that seemingly inspired one of Snoop Dogg’s songs, Gin and Juice is exactly as it sounds-an absolutely delicious combination of gin and juice. The sweet and sour fruity flavors of several fruits like orange and grapefruit mixes well with gin. To add, fresh or concentrated lime juice, like Rose’s lime juice, is a great addition to any cocktail, especially those that involve gin (yes, you can really mix lemonade and gin!).

Come on guys. Blood Oranges are back. You should have known this was gonna happen.😂 Tonight's a simple drink believe it or not. This is a Gin and Juice, with a splash of Soda Water. I was fortunate enough that the Blood Orange Juice was such a great colour. I added in some @ink_gin and topped it off with soda. This gave this drink that beautiful blue/purple colour. I won't take credit for this garnish idea either. I've seen this type of garnish around a lot lately (I'm sorry I can't remember the accounts 😬) and I wanted to give it a go. I did add a little twist on the end there which I haven't seen before, but this fun garnish is definitely not a CBT original.😁 For glass straws like this one head on over to @surfsidesips and use the code: TEMPUS44 for 20% off your order.
