Gordon's have been busy at work putting together a trio of brilliant cocktail recipes just in time for Christmas!

Hot Gin Punch

If all the relatives are coming over this is your solution. Either make from scratch, or mix a large batch of it and pop it in the freezer. Simply defrost on the hob and pop in a large punch bowl to add a bit of drama. Then serve and enjoy.


  • 40ml gin
  • 100ml cloudy apple juice
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 10ml Tio Pepe Sherry
  • 20ml sugar syrup
  • Cinnamon
  • Star anise
  • Nutmeg
  • Cloves
  • Butter


  • Simply add all ingredients into the pan and place on a low heat until there’s a light simmer, similar to heating milk
  • Strain through a fine strainer in to a tea/coffee cup
  • Garnish with a cinnamon stick and star anise

Bee's Knees

A traditional, but refreshing serve, perfect for guests coming in from the cold. 


  • 50ml gin
  • 20ml lemon juice
  • 15ml honey syrup
  • Egg white


  • Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake hard so it’s thoroughly mixed
  • Strain into a Martini glass with a lemon zest garnish

Classic Gin and Tonic


  • 50ml Gordon's gin
  • Fresh bottled tonic
  • Cubed ice
  • Wedge of lime to garnish
  • 1.9 units of alcohol

Method: Fill a chilled highball glass with fresh ice cubes. Pour 50ml of Gordon's gin over the ice and top up with chilled tonic. Gently squeeze a wedge of lime into the glass before dropping it in, then give it all a final stir. It's a great way to begin any occasion. Serve in a highball glass.
