10 Gin and Lemonade Cocktails as Sweet as the Summer Sunshine

gin and lemonade cocktail

Sometimes using lemonade as a mixer is frowned upon in the gin world as not being an appropriate pairing but we believe unusual gin mixers, such as gin and lemonade, have a use in the right time and place.

Some people just like things a little sweeter than others and that’s where lemonade can be a useful ally. Even those who advocate tonic as the only mixer for gin would be hard pressed to say no to an ice cold lemonade-infused gin cocktail on a scorching hot summer’s day.

Gin and lemonade cocktails can be as simple as you like or they can be impressive and adventurous – there really are no hard and fast rules when it comes to gin drinking.

The following collection of cocktails have everything from a simple gin and lemonade mix to more complex creations – everything a gin and lemonade lover could want.
