Signature Drinks & Cocktails

Ounce Gin 'Signature'

Signature Drinks

Ounce Gin ‘Signature’ was reverse engineered to be bright, easy drinking and to stand out in the most simple format; gin, tonic, with a wheel of orange as the garnish. 

For the perfect ‘Signature’ and tonic, we recommend:

– One part Ounce Gin ‘signature’

– Three parts tonic (preferrably Fever-Tree Mediterranian)

– Good quality ice

– Slice of fresh orange

The Negroni is an all time favourite of the IMD team, in fact, we consider it right up the top of the list of human achievements. Three ingredients, equal measures, delicious and easy. This was the second drink that we wanted to ensure our Ounce Gin ‘Signature’ was the perfect match.

– 30ml Ounce Gin ‘Signature’

– 30ml Ruby Bitter

– 30ml Sweet Vermouth

– Stir down with ice

– Strain into a tumbler over fresh ice

– Garnish with an orange twist

We at IMD love a sour and one of our regulars is The Army & Navy cocktail; as long as you can find some Orgeat syrup you’re away! The addition of Angostura Bitters is optional, but lifts the aromatics and pairs beautifully with the botanicals in Ounce Gin ‘Signature’

– 45ml Ounce Gin ‘Signature’

– 30ml fresh squeezed lemon juice

– 20ml Orgeat Syrup (maybe a touch more for more sweetness)

– 3-4 dashes Angostura Bitters

– Shake and double strain into a chilled coup

– Garnish with a lemon twist

 

Ounce Gin 'Bold'

Signature Drinks

Ounce ‘Bold’ is built as a gin that is juniper forward, herbal, and savoury style that pairs perfectly with the addition of a green olive. If you’re not an olive fan, don’t worry, try garnishing with a sprig of thyme or simply a slice of lemon.

We recommend:

– One part Ounce Gin ‘Bold’

– Three parts tonic (preferrably Fever-Tree Indian tonic)

– Good quality ice

– Garnish to your preference

The Martini is a contentious drink, it can be made myriad different ways and each person should find the way they like it best. 

That being said, a classic dry Martini is:

– 60ml Ounce Gin ‘Bold’

– 10ml Dry Vermouth

– Stir down with ice

– Strain into a chilled Martini glass

– Garnish with a Green Olive

The Tom Collins is another classic gin cocktail that is incredibly refreshing. This requires some sugar syrup (equal parts sugar and water) but is easy to make!

Grab yourself a tall glass filled with ice and add the following:

– 45ml Ounce Gin ‘Bold’

– 30ml Lemon Juice

– 20ml Sugar Syrup

– Top with soda

– Garnish with thyme and a lemon wheel

Ruby Bitter

– 1 1/2 parts Ruby Bitter

– Fresh Ice

– 3 parts Soda

– Garnish with a wheel of orange
