Gin is vodka infused with juniper berries and other delicately balanced flavors, the mix unique to each brand. Find your favorite, then use it in cocktails like martinis, gin and tonics, or the gorey Corpse Reviver.
Its a drink that the family makes on certain holidays and every one loves it.
Alcoholic fizzy fruity drink for the summer time.
Simple, spectacular, ginger-infused Vodka you make yourself! Don't waste your money on premium Vodka, any mid-shelf Vodka (Svedka(R), Skyy(R), Absolut(R)) will do. Try mixing it with soda water, tonic, or ginger ale!
A simple but controversial cocktail. If you prefer, start by pouring 1 ounce of vermouth over the ice, stir, and then strain it out and discard; then add the gin. Me, I like a respectable amount of vermouth. Shake or stir.
Essentially a gin martini with two dashes of orange bitters. This is currently my favorite martini cocktail.

Another variation on the gin martini, this one calls for a splash of absinthe.
This classic cocktail was invented sometime around Prohibition, back when flying was a rare and wild thing.

Like a "Dark and Stormy" cocktail, Russian style.
Bar none my favorite Italian cocktail. I love it before dinner; the bitter herbal quality of the Campari seems to stimulate the appetite.
I can’t really explain the name. But the drink is ecumenical.
Rye whiskey and ginger ale. So simple, and yet the spice of the rye together with the ginger ale tastes complex.
I blame Paul Westerberg for my thinking these were made with rum. They're a gin cocktail. But there's that Replacements song where Westerberg, flirting with a woman at the airport bar, claims her Singapore Sling "could use some more rum." In this recipe, as in all others, the rum is optional.
One of those extremely refreshing gin-based summer cocktails.
As Bond orders in Casino Royale. If you’re like Bond these days, you won't care whether you shake it or stir.
This gin drink is a jewel of a cocktail. You can play with the measurements somewhat. Try it with equal parts gin, vermouth and Chartreuse if you like. I like a bit more gin myself.
