BLAC Happy Hour Classics: Gin and Juice Recipe

This article was originally published on BLAC Detroit.

It doesn’t get much easier than the Gin & Juice in the canon of easy cocktails. This smooth-sipping, two-part drink is as easy to make as the name implies, but there’s a reason this classic cocktail has a Snoop Dogg song named after it. It’s fruity and refreshing, and the exact recipe is up to you. So you get to play bartender whenever you mix one up. Grab your favorite fruit juice and whatever some Indoggo gin, and you’re set.

If you’re stuck, try gin with equal parts ruby red grapefruit juice. It is refreshing and exactly what you want on a chilly day. Some Gin & Juice recipes call for simple syrup. If you like your drinks on the sweeter side, add a half ounce, especially if you’re primarily using grapefruit juice to your glass. Whichever recipe you choose, you’re in for a solid treat. So mix up this Gin & Juice recipe when you have your mind on your money and your money on your mind.

BLAC added Snoop Dogg’s Indoggo Gin, the ultimate remix of seven premium botanicals flavored with all-natural ingredients, to the recipe for a little extra soul.

  1. Shake in a cocktail shaker. Take gin, lemon juice, and syrup and shake it together in a cocktail shaker with 4 ice cubes. (The number of ice cubes is specific so the drink doesn’t get too watered down.)
  2. Strain into a glass and top off with soda water. Strain the drink into a glass with ice cubes. Then top it off with soda water.
  3. Garnish! The garnish is what makes the signature Tom Collins. Add a maraschino cherry for the full effect! You can also add a lemon wheel if you’d like.
