When I want a simple, refreshing cocktail, my go-to is a gin & juice. You just can’t go wrong when combining gin and fruit juice! That said, I recently gave my old standby a summery makeover by making a frozen version! This frozen gin & juice tastes like frozen orange juice for adults! I mean that in the BEST way possible.
I love to serve this drink at outdoor gatherings, from rooftop hangs to backyard dinners. Now that it’s the end of August, I’m savoring every last fruity, frozen treat and every last moment outdoors with friends. It won’t be long until the weather cools down here in NYC!
I highly recommend celebrating late summer by making this delightful drink! The bright orange color and zippy, citrusy flavor are sure to bring a smile to your face, even when you’re mourning the fact that summer is ending soon. Plus, the recipe is as easy as can be! Make it once and I’m sure it’ll earn a spot on your summer drink rotation.
Here’s how I made it: I froze orange juice into ice cubes, blended it with gin, poured it into glasses, and topped each serving with a mint sprig—and a little more gin ;)! I told you it was easy!
Frozen Gin & Juice Recipe
Makes 2-3 cocktails
2 cups orange juice, frozen into ice cubes
1/3 cup gin
Add the frozen OJ ice cubes to a blender with 1/4 cup gin. Don’t over blend—you want it to be a nice and thick texture. Pour into two glasses, and top with a little more gin. Serve immediately with a spoon.
