Make your own cocktails

 

For a great gin & tonic, just take a glass with some ice, pour in around 100ml of sparkling water, about 20ml of Jeffrey's, an appropriate great gin. Stir.

But if you want to shake it up a bit and make some amazing flavours at home (or ask when you find a bar or restaurant with the exceptional good taste to stock Jeffrey's), take some of our Handcrafted Cordial and find your own mix.  Here's a few recommendations of some firm favourites of ours.   

WE LOVE MAKING THE BEST COCKTAILS

For a great gin & tonic, just take a glass with some ice, pour in around 125ml of sparkling water, about 25ml of Jeffrey's, an appropriate great gin. Stir.

The Miller's Tale

Normally, Martin Miller's is seen as a superb clean and straight gin.  This mix takes it to another glorious dimension!

  • 25ml or 50ml of Martin Miller

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Sicilian Lemon & Warm Spices

  • Plenty of ice

  • A squeeze and a twist of lemon

Warm Indian

Opihr is a gin that many people find difficult to pair with. Largely because they haven't tried this yet.  The hot version is equally great but try this first.

  • 25ml or 50ml of Opihr Gin

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Sicilian Lemon & Warm Spices

  • plenty of ice

  • a sliver of chili

Amazing Gordon

Many people are a bit sniffy about Gordon's.  We've surprised more than a few with this one, because the floral nature of Gordon's is completely masked normally.  This is a revelation.  

  • 25ml or 50ml of Gordon's Dry Gin

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Sicilian Lemon & Warm Spices

  • A squeeze and a twist of lemon

  • Plenty of ice

Fruity Gordon

Many is the time we have had people say they don't like tonic but they do like Gordon's Pink Gin.  Equally many, after tasting this recipe, say they don't think they have tasted Gordon's Pink Gin properly before.

  • 25ml or 50ml of Gordon's Pink Gin

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Yarrow, Rosehip & Elderflower

  • a slice of strawberry

  • plenty of ice

Little Monkey

We've known Sherwin and Tim pretty much since they started from a small still in the back of a pub and loved the distinctive oriental flavours of their gins.  This was the lovely mix we discovered early on.

  • 25ml or 50ml of Tarsier South-East Asian Dry Gin

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Oriental Lime

  • A sliver of ginger

  • a sliver of chilli

  • plenty of ice

Pink Monkey

They repeated the success of their first recipe when they introduced a Southeast Asian version of a pink gin, which is gorgeous.

  • 25ml or 50ml of Tarsier Oriental Pink Gin

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Yarrow, Rosehip & Elderflower

  • a couple of raspberries

  • plenty of ice

Warmth of Seville

Tanqueray Sevilla is a solid favourite with a lot of people.  Everyone - honestly, everyone! - loves this.  Warm spices, oranges, what's not to like.  

  • 25ml or 50ml of Tanqueray Sevilla

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Sicilian Lemon  & Warm Spices

  • A slice of orange

  • plenty of ice

Rhubarb Rhubarb

This works with many rhubarb gins, but Tiger Ruby is particularly good.  The flavour of rhubarb is utterly amazing.

  • 25ml or 50ml of Tiger Ruby

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Oriental Lime

  • A slice of lime

  • plenty of ice

Wodka

Vodka is under-rated in these gin-laden times.  People forget that about 60% of vodka isn't the spirit.  There is a lot of opportunity for greatness. These are two examples.

  • 25ml or 50ml of Tiger Vodka or Arbikie Vodka

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Sicilian Lemon & Warm Spices

  • Slice of lemon

  • plenty of ice

Blooming Jeffrey's

The lovely floral nature of Bloom gin is enjoyed by many, but it is quite surprising just how well it comes through here.  Daffy's is a quite beautiful alternative (which we sometimes prefer).

  • 25ml or 50ml of Bloom or Daffy's gin

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Yarrow, Rosehip & Elderflower

  • Slice of lemon

  • plenty of ice

Classics Reshaped

Jeffrey's Bourbon Old-fashioned

They say if you have to have one cocktail, make it a Bourbon Old-fashioned.  Well, we reckon this one knocks the spots off pretty much anything else...  

 

  • 50ml of Woodford Reserve Bourbon

  • 10ml of Maple Syrup

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Classic Premium Indian Tonic Syrup

  • Ice

  • Tumbler

  • Sadé on your music system

Relax & enjoy.

Jeffrey's Negroni

The bitterness of quinine in a tonic syrup works brilliantly in a Negroni, but Jeffrey's Classic Premium Indian tonic syrup makes this a bit special..  

 

  • 50ml gin - say Broker's, maybe, but Tanqueray or Gordon's works as well

  • 50ml Jeffrey's Classic Premium Indian Tonic Syrup

  • 50ml Aperol

  • A squeeze of lemon

  • A slice of lemon

And.. breathe.

Mojito Twist

A twist on a classic cocktail.  Try this refreshing drink with an extra layer of complexity!

  • 2 tsp sugar

  • 25ml of lime juice

  • 25ml of Jeffrey's Oriental Lime

  • Bunch of fresh mint leaves

  • Soda or sparkling water

  • 25ml of white rum

  • Ice

  • Slice of fresh lime

 

Prosecco Jeffrey's

Prosecco's OK, we have nothing against Prosecco.  But add a little Yarrow, Rosehip & Elderflower and you have a thing of beauty.  Just saying.  

 

  • 10ml of Jeffrey's Yarrow, Rosehip & Elderflower

  • 1 serve of Prosecco

New ones

Surprising Irish

Another nice surprise was an Instagrammed cocktail from a Jeffrey's fan. (If you have any more great ideas, let us know!).  It would never have occurred to us, but genius takes many forms.

  • 10ml of Jeffrey's Yarrow, Rosehip & Elderflower

  • 25ml or 50ml of Jameson's Irish Whiskey

  • a little water to loosen

  • ice

Jeffrey's Armed Forces Cocktail

Slight alteration to the Army & Navy Cocktail

  • 50ml London Dry Gin

  • 20ml Lemon Juice

  • 50ml Jeffrey's Sicilian Lemon & Warm Spices

  • Slice of Lemon for garnish

  • Ice (optional)

Hot Christmas Gins

Warm Spices

Opihr works wonderfully well with the spices of our Sicilian Lemon and Warm Spices and with a pre-warmed mug and a touch of Orange you'll be warm inside even if it's not warm out. 

 

  • 50ml of Jeffrey's Sicilian Lemon & Warm Spices

  • 25ml of Opihr Gin

  • 100ml of boiling water

  • A slice of Orange, or Orange peel
     

Equals Winter Wonderland!

Christmas in Southeast Asia

Let the taste of this hot G&T transport you to the Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand. Tarsier gin has exotic flavours such as Calamansi and Kampot Pepper, and the Galangal from both gin and the cordial will take you on a journey across Southeast Asia.

  • 100ml of boiling water

  • A slice of Orange peel

Classic Christmas Hot Gin

The flavours of cinnamon (from our Cassia), nutmeg, allspice and clove are a natural fit with the lovely marmalade

Orange of Tanqueray Sevilla.  You'd think it would work.  Surprise, surprise - it's gorgeous.
