We've created seven sensationally sippable cocktails using our new Orange & Cacao gin that perfectly pairs orange and chocolate for a delightful ginny tipple.

It’s zesty, chocolatey, and unmistakably junipery. Inspired by the citrus gins of centuries past, this modern take uses the popular flavour combination chocolate and orange, boasting rich cacao aromatics and a marmalade brightness. Our new Orange & Cacao Gin is delectable in a cocktail, so read on for sipping inspiration in our seven cocktail recipes.

 

1. CHOCOLATE ORANGE G&T

Humming with citrus and complemented by a deep chocolate bass note, this is a captivating twist on the classic G&T.

Orange & Cacao G&T

50ml Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin

Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water

Orange wheel, to garnish

Fill a highball glass up to the top with ice cubes. Pour in the gin and top up with tonic. Garnish with an orange wheel.

 

2. ORANGE & CACAO SPRITZ

This sensationally sippable summer sprtiz (try saying that after 3 of these!) has a refreshingly light start and a long, chocolatey finish. Very moreish.

50ml Sipsmith Orange and Cacao Gin

100ml Soda water

100ml Prosecco

Orange wedge (to garnish)

Add 50ml Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin into an ice filled wine glass and top with half Prosecco and half Soda water. Garnish with a fresh orange wedge.

3. ORANGE & CACAO WHITE LADY

The original White Lady is a celebration of all things gin and citrus, and this reinterpretation of the classic serve adds chocolate orange gin to the mix. 

Orange & Cacao Whitelady

50ml Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin

20ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

10ml sugar syrup

1 egg white

Orange twist, to garnish

Add the first four ingredients to an empty cocktail shaker and dry shake (without ice) until well combined. Add ice to the shaker and shake again. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange twist.

 

4. CHOCOLATE ORANGE ROYALE

A Sipsmith twist on the classic Kir Royale, this citrussy and chocolatey cocktail is a simple, yet impressive serve for any cocktail party.

30ml Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin

100ml Prosecco or Champagne

Orange twist (to garnish)

Add the gin to a chilled flute and top with Champagne or Prosecco. Garnish with an orange twist and enjoy.

5. ORANGE & CACAO SIDECAR

Traditionally, the Sidecar is made with a base of brandy or bourbon and orange liqueur. But in our version, we use Orange & Cacao Gin as a rich, indulgent base.

35ml Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin

25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

15ml brandy

12.5ml sugar syrup

To create a sugar-coated rim, rub a lemon or orange around the rim of a coupe glass and dip the glass in sugar. Add all the ingredients to an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into the glass.

 

6. ORANGE COLLINS

A sweeter and zestier take on a classic Tom Collins, our Orange Collins shows off the Orange & Cacao Gin’s refreshing, sippable side.
