7 Sensationally Sippable Orange & Cacao Gin Cocktails

in Mixology April 17, 2019
Orange & Cacao

We’ve created seven sensationally sippable cocktails using our new zesty, uncompromisingly handcrafted 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. ZESTY 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.

Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin makes for a perfect, creative twist in a number of classic cocktails.

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. HOT CHOCOLATE ORANGE

Upgrade your hot chocolate with our Orange & Cacao – or Zesty Orange – Gin for a deliciously indulgent, yet zesty, warming sip. Trust us – it works!

50ml Sipsmith Zesty Orange Gin
Hot chocolate (made with milk)
Whipped cream (optional)
Grated orange zest (to garnish)

Pour a double measure of Zesty Orange Gin into a mug. Top with warm hot chocolate made with milk. Stir with a spoon to combine. For an extra decadent serve, top with cream and grated orange zest.

It’s zesty, chocolatey, and unmistakably junipery.

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 this gin’s refreshing, sippable side.

Orange and Cacao Gin

50ml Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin
20ml freshly squeezed orange juice
Soda water
Orange wedge or twist, to garnish

Fill a highball glass with ice and add the gin and orange juice, and stir briefly to mix. Top up with soda water and garnish with an orange wedge or twist.

 

7. ORANGE & CACAO OLD FASHIONED

Our Orange & Cacao gin is the star of this recipe, with its citrussy and chocolatey profile making it a delicious sip.

30ml Sipsmith Orange and Cacao Gin
30ml Bourbon
2 Dashes Angostura bitters
Orange twist (to garnish)

Combine all ingredients in an ice filled mixing glass and stir down. Strain and serve over ice in a rocks glass and garnish with an orange twist.
