What juice goes well with gin?
Now that you know how to make the best gin and juice recipe, AKA the most basic version of what we are going to assume was the original (cocktail history gets murky sometimes), let’s look at some tasty variations shall we?
The great thing about gin is that it pairs well with all sorts of sweet, zesty and tropical flavors, you can really take your pick of juices to mix it with. Here’s a list of our favorites.
Who doesn’t love a gin and orange juice cocktail recipe? From the iconic Mimosa, to the always-classic Screwdriver, orange juice is a very versatile mixer, so it makes sense that it likes to buddy up with gin as well.

Drink recipes with gin and lime juice abound, and with good reason – it’s just *chef’s kiss*. Lime juice has this super fresh green note that speaks to the juniper flavors in gin like a friend whispering in their bestie’s ear.

One cannot simply share a gin and orange juice cocktail recipe and not mention the fact that everyone’s favorite 90s gangsta rapper has a whole song about it. Plus, it’s not only a rap either – Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr actually has his own recipe for this juicy cocktail.
He prefers to combine 2 oz London Dry Gin with 2 oz pineapple juice, top it off with club soda and garnish it with a pineapple slice. In short, old Snoop plays in the tropical space, which is very on brand for our bro.
