Our Favorite Lemon Drizzle Gin Cocktails

in Mixology December 9, 2020

Served as a sensationally sippable Spritz, a zesty G&T or a refreshing Mojito, here’s our favorite lemon gin cocktails, crafted with our Lemon Drizzle Gin.

When life gives you lemons, what better solution than to combine them with our award-winning London Dry Gin? That’s exactly what our talented Distillers did to create our deliciously hand crafted Lemon Drizzle Gin. Vapor-infused with sweet, sun-dried lemon peel, delicately aromatic lemon verbena and hand-peeled lemons, our Lemon Drizzle Gin joins its equally zesty partner in citrus – our Zesty Orange Gin.


Bringing a burst of citrus to the classic gin and tonic, a Lemon Drizzle G&T is like a welcome ray of summer sunshine. Slightly sweet, satisfyingly simple and eminently refreshing, it’s also incredibly simple to craft at home by filling a highball glass with ice and pouring over 1 part Sipsmith Lemon Drizzle Gin. Top up with 3 parts Mediterranean tonic water and gently ‘lift’ with a drinks Stirrer or long-handled spoon to combine. Garnish with a lemon peel twist or wedge of fresh lemon.

For a tantalizing and taste-bud-tingling marriage of lemon and mint, our Lemon Drizzle Mojito is our go-to lemon gin cocktail for summer. Give this traditional Cuban cocktail a ginny twist:

  • 2 1/2 parts Sipsmith Lemon Drizzle Gin
  • 3/4 part lemon juice
  • 3/4 part lime juice
  • 1 part sugar syrup
  • 8-10 mint leaves
  • Crushed ice
  • Chilled soda water
  • Fresh lemon twist, to garnish

Add the first 5 ingredients to a highball glass and muddle with a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon. Then add crushed ice and churn with a long spoon. Then, top up with more crushed ice and chilled soda water, before garnishing with a sprig of mint and a fresh lemon peel twist.

Champagne flutes at the ready – this lemon gin cocktail deserves to be served with a flourish. Created in 1915 at the New York Bar in Paris by bartender Harry MacElhone, we’ve taken the classic French 75 recipe and given it a zesty twist. To make a Lemon Drizzle 75

  • 1/2 part sugar syrup
  • Chilled prosecco, to top
  • Fresh lemon twist, to garnish

Add the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup to an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake well to combine the ingredients and then strain into a Champagne flute or coupe glass. Top up with chilled prosecco, then garnish with a lemon peel twist.

A classic St Clement’s is a non-alcoholic cocktail named after the popular children’s nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons. Naturally, we’ve added a ginny twist to this citrus sparkler and coined it a St Clement’s Fizz.

  • 1/2 part sweet vermouth
  • 2 1/2 parts freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Chilled prosecco, to top
  • Orange peel twist, to garnish

Add the gin, sweet vermouth and fresh orange juice to an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake well to combine and then double-strain into a chilled flute. Top with prosecco and garnish with an orange peel twist.
