Gin is one of the most versatile spirits, and one of the best things about it is how well it goes with fruity, floral and herbal flavors. There are so many possibilities for mixing up gin cocktails, but these five classics are the perfect place to start.
The Gimlet is one of the easiest cocktails to make. With only 3 ingredients (gin, lime juice and simple syrup), you can whip this one up anytime.
The Negroni was invented in 1919 and is still one of the most popular cocktail in the world today. Another three-ingredient cocktail, it's a delicious and easy drink to make at home.
The Southside is similar to the Gimlet, but adding mint leaves gives it a fresh twist. It was invented in pre-Prohibition era Chicago and was a favorite of Al Capone.
The Tom Collins is a simple but delicious mix of gin, lemon juice, simple syrup and seltzer. Don't forget the classic Maraschino cherry and lemon garnish!
The Bees Knees combines gin, lemon juice and honey for a match made in bee heaven. This pre-Prohibition cocktail remains popular to this day.
