Gin and juice

Okay, can the real Gin and Juice recipe please stand up? This chameleon-esque cocktail has a very Cher vibe about it – it keeps reinventing itself, which is obviously great, since we all love something fresh and novel. However, if you are one of those by-the-book folks who like to do things according to the official recipe, the many, many variations on this zesty drink theme are guaranteed to drive you bonkers.  

The great news is that every version of this drink is super simple to pour, which is much YAY if you’re not quite keen on any tricky stuff just yet. So, let’s start with the classic Gin and Juice recipe, and then we’ll introduce you to its many delicious variations.  



Store-bought juice will also do the trick, so use it if you have it!


Try different juices to find your favorite (cranberry is super interesting)

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.  

Orange juice

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.  

Cranberry juice

A gin and cranberry juice recipe also goes down a treat. Sweet, with a tingly little sour edge and a mildly bitter aftertaste, cranberry has a little more grit than most of its juicier berry cousins, but that makes it all the more interesting as an addition to a jaunty spirit like gin.  

Lime juice

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.   

What is in Snoop Dogg’s Gin and Juice recipe?

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.
