For those who enjoy Gin cocktails, whether they are homemade or from your favourite lounge bar in London, there are a wide variety of gin cocktails to be found. The Soho cocktail bars offer a wide range of drinks based on gin mostly because of its unique flavour and composition that allows it to mix well with so many other ingredients.
Here are just a few of the many varieties of gin cocktails you will find in the best bars in Soho and some that you can make yourself.
Gin & Tonic
Another classic two-ingredient drink, the Gin and Tonic offers the foundation for the many varieties of gin highballs. Perhaps the best reason why this combination is still so popular is due to its unique taste. A little dry perhaps, but perfect if you are tired of the sugary drinks that are often made with gin.
The classic Martini is crafted from gin and dry vermouth that is mixed to your liking. Most gin martinis are stirred, not shaken, and this classic gin cocktail is still highly popular at the best bars in Soho today.
If you want the perfect gin cocktail that makes a great pre-dinner drink, go no further than the Negroni. Crafted from gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth, it provides a potent punch while having a unique taste. The Campari is rather bitter, but it offset somewhat by the sweet vermouth. The Negroni may not be for everyone, but it is still a highly popular drink.
If you are visiting one of the best bars in Soho or just relaxing at a lounge bar in London, keep in mind that there are many varieties of gin cocktails that you can order there. Still, our bartenders at RustiKo have introduced a new list of original and creative Gin cocktails that you cannot enjoy elsewhere.
A response to the signature New York Cosmopolitan, this UK version combines a fresh citrus taste with a gentle gin infused bitter finish. The fruity aroma of sweet and bitter raspberry and lime balance the scent and make the Hummingbird Cosmo the perfect beginning of your spectacular Friday night.
Japanese Ice Tea
A lemony, refreshing and exotic modern version of the well known Long Island Ice Tea. The carefully balanced mixture of vodka, rum, gin, triple sec and lemonade results in a spectacularly refreshing light taste.
The Flying Cucumber
A twist on the famous Aviation cocktail. The fresh cucumbers complete perfectly the symbolic light fresh taste of this cocktail. The cherry garnish at the bottom of the glass gives out a beautiful red shade, making it hard to believe the exquisite colourful palette of this cocktail comes only from organic fruit and vegetables.
There are other great gin cocktails that you can enjoy at RustiKo, for example, Mediterrone Collins and Gold Fish in a bag. If you want to enjoy an extraordinary experience at the best lounge bar in London, our basement lounge bar, ‘The Shed’ is the perfect destination for you and your friends.
