World Cocktail Day Calls for “The Snoop” The Perfect Summer Cocktail

world cocktail day gin and juice

For World Cocktail Day, Gin and Juice is only appropriate for the purpose of a delicious summer cocktail recipe.

Back in 1993, Snoop Dogg rapped about Gin & Juice on his debut album Doggystyle, and the drink formerly associated with grandmothers everywhere suddenly became instantly well-known.

Then in 2018 he went on to prepare the famous concoction as he mixed a gigantic Gin and Juice (550 litres to be exact).

In honour of #WorldCocktailDay we have found the recipe for this cocktail only with a little something extra, to spice up a “laid back” summer evening with friends.

We give you “The Snoop”, the summer pitcher version that will quench the thirst of you and any of your guests.

This recipe is potent and the cinnamon adds a little fire. Make sure the citrus juices are freshly squeezed.
