Craft Gin Club: Gin & Orange Juice Cocktails

Craft Gin Club’s August 2022 Gin of the Month box is here to whisk you away to the coast on a classic British holiday. Including an exclusive craft gin distilled just for Craft Gin Club members and lots of tasty treats, all worth over £67, it’s the ideal way to celebrate the season with your fellow gin enthusiasts.

Hailing from Cornwall, on England’s gorgeous southern coastline, the August 2022 Gin of the Month is Lantic Gin's special edition Morva Gin. Made using botanicals foraged on Cornish coastal paths, it can be enjoyed on its own, or in the Cocktail of the Month, it’s the perfect holiday treat.

Gin and Orange Juice are a match made in heaven, especially when you use our Orange Juice! Each bottle of our delicious orange juice contains three and a half plump, sun-kissed oranges, giving you that true, authentic, fresh orange flavour that never fails to produce a smile.

Craft Gin Club’s Gin on the Beach cocktail is the perfect cocktail to get you in the summer holiday spirit. This gin-based twist on the classic Sex on the Beach cocktail is fruity, vibrant and completely fabulous.

The classic Sex on the Beach recipe can vary and has been done ever since it started appearing in the 1980s. You may even find a Sex on the Beach shot on some menus! But the traditional ingredients are vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice and cranberry juice.

This easy, gin take on Sex on the Beach has just three main ingredients. It swaps the vodka for Lantic Morva Gin, and gives you those incredible fruity tones through a mix of our Orange Juice and Craft Gin Club’s bespoke Gin on the Beach cocktail syrup - all of which are available to Craft Gin Clubbers in their August 2022 Gin of the Month box

We can’t wait for you to give it a go!
