Gin & Tonic, Gin Cosmo Rickey recipes in honor of tomorrow’s National Gin & Tonic Day

Tomorrow is national Gin & Tonic Day but Mattias Horseman, brand ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin is celebrating a day early with a quite unusual cocktail demonstration featuring rose and cucumbers accents and a little magic. Mattias encourages everyone to stay safe at home by using a liquor delivery service, such as Drizly, to order ingredients. 


Hendrick’s G&T

  • 1 part Hendrick’s Gin
  • 2 parts tonic water (optional: substitute with flavored tonic water, such as Elderflower)


Fill a highball glass with good cubed ice.  Combine all ingredients and give a gentle stir. Garnish with a cucumber. 

Hendrick’s Gin Cosmo Rickey

  • 2 parts Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice 
  • ½ part simple syrup
  • ½ part freshly squeezed lime juice 
  • ½ part cranberry juice
  • Top with soda water


Build ingredients in a highball glass with ice. Gently stir and garnish with an orange wheel.
