Make Your Very Own Strawberry Gin at Home


For some, a brilliant way to unwind after a long and busy day of work is by relaxing with a nice refreshing glass of flavoured gin. There are a lot of these in the market, but you would be surprised that making your own takes little to no effort. One such recipe is strawberry gin, as the fruit goes so well with the flavour of juniper berries that gin is popularly known for.

Strawberry gin can be made at home quite easily. Mix it with a little tonic, and you’ve got something to impress your guests. If you have a few minutes and is looking for a playful addition to your home bar, here’s a little recipe that you can follow to make this refreshing drink!

The two most important ingredients you need to get hold of are, of course, gin and strawberries.

You want at least a 70cl bottle of gin and it’s recommended to get a juniper-forward brand such as Tanqueray London Dry Gin or Bombay Sapphire Original London Dry to get that beautiful combination of strawberries and juniper to the taste.

For strawberries, you’re going to want the freshest picks you can find in your local farmer’s market. This is to ensure that the flavours of your berries are at their peak.

You will also need some sugar, any kind of sugar will do.

Here are what you need to make the drink: 

  • 200g of strawberries, quartered
  • 100g of sugar
  • 70ml of gin
