What goes well with gin in cocktails?
If you run out of tonic for your halloween gin cocktails some mixers that pair well with gin include:
- Gin and bitter lemon. Bitter lemon (or fresh lemon juice) is a great alternative among those who don’t particularly enjoy the taste of tonic.
- Gin and ginger. Gin and ginger beer is becoming one of the hottest trends in the world of gin. You can add this mixer to pretty much any gin.
- Gin and lime. Lime juice (or a lime wedge), mint cordial and gin make a refreshing combination!
- Gin and grapefruit. Grapefruit juice (or simply adding a grapefruit peel) is a refreshing and pretty mixer for gin! It is especially gorgeous when you add a sprig of rosemary to garnish.
- Gin and cranberry juice. Gin and cranberry juice doesn’t need anything else added to it. It is a perfect way to enjoy gin.
- Gin and tomato juice. The combination of gin and tomato juice is known as the popular gin cocktail named the Red Snapper!
- Gin and orange. Gin and orange slice is a classic gin cocktail pairing. You can also substitute orange for orange juice, orange bitters, or blood orange.
- Gin and apple juice. Apple juice is a great mixer for gin instead of tonic. If your feeling more adventurous you can also try using apple cider!

What is the best way to drink gin?
There is no better way to drink your halloween gin cocktail other than drinking it straight up. Chill it first as it is best served ice cold. Then pour contents in a mixing glass filled with ice cubes and stir it. Finally strain it into a coupe glass.
Is Gin Gluten Free?
Yes, gin is considered to be naturally gluten free by the Celiac Disease Foundation even though Gin is typically distilled from grains that contain gluten including barley, wheat and rye. Despite the fact that gin is often made from grains it’s still gluten free because there are zero gluten peptides in distilled alcohol.
So the distillation process gin goes through eliminates any residual gluten from the barley, wheat or rye.
Additionally, some gin is distilled from potatoes. Potatoes are naturally gluten free.
