Suitable for any day that ends in 'y', this recipe can also be modified into a delightful non-alcoholic version to please guests of all ages. Let's shake up something spectacular!



30 ml Gordon’s Gin (or any base gin of your choice)

1/2 teaspoon lemon dust

2 teaspoons sugar syrup (homemade preferred)

Ice cubes

Soda water to top up

Lemon wheel, for garnish

Lime wheel, for garnish

Fresh mint leaves, for garnish




  1. Prepare Your Sugar Syrup
    If you haven’t made sugar syrup before, it’s quite simple. Combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. This syrup can be stored in the refrigerator and used in various drinks.


  1. Mix the Cocktail
    In a cocktail shaker, combine the Gordon’s Gin, lemon dust, and sugar syrup. Fill the shaker with ice, covering the liquid. Secure the lid on the shaker and give it a vigorous shake for at least 30 seconds. This not only chills the mixture but also allows the lemon dust to fully integrate into the liquid, releasing its vibrant flavors.


  1. Prepare the Glass
    Fill a highball glass or any tall glass with ice cubes to the brim.


  1. Assemble the Drink
    Strain the chilled gin mixture into the prepared glass over the ice, making sure to leave room for the soda.


  1. Add the Finishing Touches
    Gently top the glass with soda water, adjusting according to taste. Stir lightly to mix the soda with the gin concoction.


  1. Garnish and Serve
    Garnish with a wheel of lemon, a wheel of lime, and a sprig of fresh mint. The lemon and lime not only add a visual flair but also a refreshing citrus aroma that complements the mint beautifully.


Non-Alcoholic Variation

For a family-friendly version, simply omit the gin. Mix lemon dust and sugar syrup in a shaker with ice, follow the same steps, and top with soda water. It’s a perfect way to keep everyone in the party spirit!


Whether you're in the mood for a spirited evening or a non-alcoholic treat, our Gin and Lemon Dust Soda is sure to impress. This drink stands out with its simple yet sophisticated flavour profile, making it a versatile choice for any occasion. Serve this up at your next gathering or treat yourself to a delightful refreshment any day of the week. Cheers to a deliciously hydrated day!
