This Simple Cola Cube Gin Recipe Will Leave You Dreaming of Childhood

cola cube gin recipe

Cola Cubes were the cause of many a trip to dentist, partly because they were hard to crunch but also because they were just so tasty. We’ve found a way to enjoy to enjoy that iconic taste of childhood in a slightly safer way in the form of a cola cube gin recipe.

Of course, our mature tastes have a fondness for bitter juniper and savoury tastes, but with sweet-inspired tipples a huge gin trend and only growing in popularity, this could be a way to take a sugar-sprinkled trip down memory lane.

It couldn’t really be any simpler to flavour your own cola cube gin using your favourite sweets. You don’t need anything more than a basic unflavoured gin, cola cube sweets and a 1l Kilner jar or similar in which the gin will infuse with the sweet taste of childhood.

Plus, if you’re feeling suitably sweet shop inspired, you can always nip over to our Skittles gin or Black Jack Gin recipes too and really let the fun be-gin!

Cola Cube Gin Recipe


  • 70cl gin (a basic London Dry is fine)
  • 200g cola cube sweets


  1. Crush the cola cube sweets
  2. Add the sweets and gin into a Kilner jar.
  3. Leave sealed in a cupboard for 6-7 days until the crushed sweets have dissolved. Shake well daily.
  4. Strain to serve.
