Top 10 Gin drinks

Gin is a lovely thing. It’s very tasty and can be used for a huge variety of cocktail and drink recipes.

Most prefer to mix it with tonic (you know, the G&T – nice!), some prefer Schweppes lemonade (uhm!). Others prefer to mix it with “snaps” (the Danish spirit made from potatoes, not that awful, synthetic “schnapps” that comes in every fake flavour possible).

Here we have collected a set of 10 exceptionally great drinks based on gin. Please give them a try and share your experience and own recipes in the comments below.
