Gin Cocktails

We feel like gin tends to get a bad rap for its stron flavor. So it’s been really fun to create this series of gin cocktails to debunk that a little bit!

I would argue that if your main impression of gin is that strong, “Christmas tree” taste, you haven’t had a great gin cocktail yet! This gin and prosecco cocktail is the perfect one to start with.

We’ve also had absolute rave reviews for our Bee’s Knees cocktail recipe, which is a gin cocktail as well.

Substitutions in this Gin and Prosecco Cocktail

Below I’ve shared our exact recipe to create our gin and prosecco cocktail. But I love this drink because you can substitute various parts of it to tweak the recipe to your liking.

While we enjoy the classic gin and prosecco combination, for this one we switched up the prosecco with a sparkling peachy rosé, which added a peachy color to the mix. This substitution added a floral note that was really lovely.

A dry champagne substitution will remove any additional sweetness from the drink. Champagne will also result in a bubble or “sparkle” that’s much finer, while prosecco will give you larger bubbles and probably a more fruity taste.

Is This a French 75 Cocktail?

While this gin and prosecco cocktail is pretty close, it’s technically not a French 75. We love those too! (Recipe on the way soon.)

If you use traditional champagne rather than prosecco or a sparkling rosé, then you’ve got yourself a French 75!

This one is a somewhat “pink” take on that. Just a bit sweeter, with a different type of bubble.

Ingredients for A Gin and Prosecco Cocktail

Here’s what you’ll need to make our Gin and Prosecco cocktail!

Gin. Of course! When choosing a gin, look for something dry with citrus notes (as opposed to a very juniper-heavy gin). A bottle with a fresh, light flavor will bring out the other ingredients in this cocktail perfectly. We suggest a London dry – you can’t go wrong with Hendrick’s.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also make your own gin like we have done.

Prosecco. In a pinch, we used a peachy sparkling rosé. It mostly added color more than anything. Experiment here a bit, if you’d like to switch up your drink. For a no-fail crowd pleaser, I recommend a simple La Marca prosecco.

Lemon juice. Always use fresh lemon juice in your cocktails! It’s one step to take that really makes them stand out.

Simple syrup. In a pinch, make your own at home. Or use something like this. If you’re making your own, make it extra interesting by infusing it with a fun flavor.

Lemon twist for garnish. See below for our quick and simple lemon twist tutorial!

How to Make a Lemon Twist Garnish

It’s much easier than you think! Here’s a quick how-to for creating a lemon twist garnish to go with your gin and prosecco cocktail.

  1. Cut a lemon wheel. Try to make it even in thickness all the way around.
  2. Slice open the lemon wheel on one side.
  3. Cut out the flesh of the lemon so that you have a wheel of rind left.
  4. Twist and hold the rind into a spiral for a few seconds. After you release, it should stay curled. Place it on the rim of your glass!
