To celebrate Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday, September 27, the team at Think Gin has been pondering how best to participate. We desserted the idea of cake, we crumbled at the thought of biscuits, so we thought we’d stick to what we do best, GIN!
We have compiled a list of some of the best Coffee Gin Cocktails which you can take along to any coffee morning, or even host your own to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support!
As a Think Gin Club member, you get to enjoy these excellent cocktail recipes as well as a monthly box of the month, which contains gin, mixer, snacks, gifts and more. If you’re not a member and would like to sign up, then join the club today.
Gin Espresso Martini
The obvious choice for our gin cocktails list, the Gin Espresso Martini will certainly wake you up at the event!
We recommend using strong coffee for the best taste.
60ml Cold Brew Coffee
Coffee Beans to Garnish
Fill your cocktail shaker with ice, then pour the coffee, gin and syrup on top. Shake to allow the ice to break, then double strain into a coupe or martini glass.
A few coffee beans provide the perfect serve.
Buzzing Coffee Gin & Tonic
This take on a classic is the perfect pick-me-up for the coffee morning.
We recommend using local runny honey so you can get the best taste.
40ml Cold Brew Coffee
15ml Honey Syrup
Lemon Peel Twist
To make the honey syrup, heat 60ml of honey and 60ml of water in a saucepan. Heat until the honey melts into the water.
Place the ice cubes in a Collins glass. Combine the coffee, honey syrup and gin in the glass and stir. Top up with tonic water and add more ice as needed.
Place a twist of lemon peel over the top of the drink for garnish.
This refreshing cocktail will certainly leave you feeling refreshed!
Make sure to garnish with a fresh slice of lemon.
30ml Cold Brew Coffee
60ml Sparkling Water
40ml Lemon Juice
20ml Sugar Syrup
Place the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup into a highball glass. Fill glass with ice, then top with sparkling water, but leave space at the top. Stir to combine, before adding the cold coffee.
Garnish with a slice of lemon for the best taste.
This caffeinated take on the classic is perfect to take along to any Coffee Morning!
Make sure to squeeze orange peel over the glass for the best taste.
25ml Sweet Vermouth

Pour the gin, Campari, espresso & vermouth into a cocktail shaker over ice, gently stir and pour into an ice-filled tumbler.
Squeeze an orange peel over the glass, wipe it around the rim and add to the cocktail.
