Triple Juniper Gin & tonic

 
The gin & tonic has been quenching thirsts for hundreds of years and we of the Never Never Distilling Co. love its versatility and simplicity. The juniper profile of the Triple Juniper Gin really lends itself to be mixed with the classic flavours of quinine found in good quality tonic water. We also have lots of lemon in our botanical profile which is obvious on the nose, so we compliment this by adding a lemon wedge garnish to our gin and tonic. For something extra special we recommend you serve it in a wine glass and add a sprig of lemon thyme and a twist of lemon peel. Because you’re fancy.

Never Never Negroni

 
The Negroni is one our favourite cocktails. Of course, you can make it slightly more traditional by using equal parts and garnishing with an orange twist, however we like ours a little more gin heavy. Because we love gin. The toasted cinnamon adds a smoky spiciness to the drink and enhances the wood spice used in the gin’s profile.
 
30ml Never Never Triple Juniper Gin

25ml Campari

25ml Italian sweet vermouth

Garnish: toasted cinnamon quill
 
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, add ice and stir until the glass becomes frosted. Pour over a large chunk of ice in a fancy rocks glass. Toast cinnamon in glass with a lighter or blow torch. Drink immediately.
 


Never Never Gibson Martini

 
Without a doubt the best thing to come out of America. The Gibson martini embraces a slightly more savoury twist, using pickled cocktail onions as a garnish. The Gibson is not a martini for everyone, but then again, not everyone’s for martinis so why not do something we like to drink.
 
60ml Never Never Triple Juniper Gin

10ml quality dry vermouth

2 dashes of orange bitters

Garnish with two cocktail onions on a skewer
 
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir the drink until a frost develops on the outside of the mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cocktail onions (I know right, wierd, but try it, it’s really delicious).
 


Never Never Red Snapper

 
Put simply, a Red Snapper is a Bloody Mary made with gin instead of vodka, so effectively made with something with far more flavoursome. Everybody likes it differently, we prefer ours short and spicy with Sriracha instead of Tabasco sauce.
 
30ml Never Never Triple Juniper Gin

90ml quality tomato juice

10ml lemon juice

5ml Sriracha sauce

5ml Worcester sauce

pinch of salt & pepper

Garnish with a celery spear
 
Add all ingredients into a cocktail tin, add ice and pass this between another tin flamboyantly like a boss. Alternatively, you just stir it gently and not make any mess. Pour into a short glass and garnish with celery spear.
 


Southern Strength Southside

 
The Southside cocktail is a touch more sophisticated then it’s rum drenched cousin, the Mojito. The basics are the same, with gin, lime juice, mint and sugar combining to create a truly delicious libation. Serve it up for the classic or build it in a highball and top with soda water to create a fizz.
 
60ml Never Never Southern Strength Gin

30ml fresh lime juice

15ml sugar syrup

8 mint leaves

Garnish with a mint sprig
 
Add all ingredients into a cocktail tin, add ice and shake furiously. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass. For a fizz variation, add the mint to the bottom of a highball, gently press with a barspoon and build the drink using crushed ice. Top with soda water.
 


Southern Strength Gin & Tonic

 
Southern Strength Gin is a more savoury gin which lends itself to working with the bright acidity of lime. In a gin & tonic, this gin works beautifully well with a simple squeeze of lime juice to cut through the sweet bitterness of the tonic and a fresh mint sprig for aroma.
 
30ml Never Never Southern Strength Gin

100ml quality tonic water.

Garnish with a lime wedge and mint sprig
 
Add all ingredients to a tall glass or wine glass and top with quality ice. Top with tonic water and garnish with mint and lime.
 


Southern Strength Collins

 
The Tom Collins is one of the best representations of a classic gin cocktail. Strong, tart and sparkling, this cocktail is great for people who don’t enjoy the bitter dryness associated with quality tonic water. It’s almost turning into a forgotten classic, such is it’s rarity on cocktail lists. We love it, simplicity is often the best.
 
60ml Never Never Southern Strength Gin

20ml fresh lemon juice

20ml sugar syrup

soda water or sparkling mineral water top

Garnish with a lemon wedge
 
Add all ingredients into a cocktail tin, add ice and shake gently. Strain into a chilled highball glass. Add ice. Top with soda water.
 


Freak Last Word

 
The Last Word is one of those forgotten classic cocktails that spent the better part of the last hundred years stuck in a dusty book. It’s revival was largely in part down to it’s elegance and bold character, and it’s ability to feel like a contemporary cocktail despite it’s old-world charm. The Juniper Freak stands up over the herbaceous Chartreuse and sweet maraschino to provide the perfect base for this cracking cocktail.
 
20ml Never Never Juniper Freak Gin

20ml Green Chartreuse

20ml maraschino liqueur

20ml fresh lime juice
Garnish with a skewered maraschino cherry
 
Add all ingredients into a cocktail tin, add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled Nick and Nora glass.
 


Juniper Freak Gin & Tonic

 
The Juniper Freak is a beast of a gin which is truly unleashed when diluted with quality tonic water. The haze of juniper and citrus oils is immediately apparent, as is the bright aromas of pine, zest and resin. The gin was built for a gin & tonic and it makes one of the best going around. It even stands up to the usually overwhelming aromas of grapefruit and rosemary which we use as a garnish.

100ml quality tonic water.

Garnish with a wedge of pink grapefruit and a spear of rosemary.
 
Add all ingredients to a tall glass or wine glass and top with quality ice. Top with tonic water and garnish with pink grapefruit and rosemary.
 


Classic Fancy Fruit Cup

 
The Fancy Fruit Cup is summer in a glass, built for the Australian pursuit of fun in the sun. The fruit cup is a gin-based drink steeped in English history – enjoyed at Wimbledon, The Ashes and barmy garden parties. The classic serve is usually served long, topped with lemonade and ginger ale, and garnished with a bouquet of fresh fruit such as cucumber, strawberry, orange and mint.

Fancy Spritz

 
Less sweet and sticky than it’s favourite Italian cousin, this Spritz is dry and crisp and works beautifully with locally made Prosecco. It’s perfect for the casual Sunday sessions on innercity rooftop bars or by the beach, fish and/or chips in hand. Simplicity in it’s finest.
 
45ml Fancy Fruit Cup

90ml Prosecco

45ml soda water

barspoon of sugar syrup

Add barspoon of sugar and Fancy Fruit Cup to the bottom of the glass. Stir to combine (if you prefer it drier you can omit this step). Add Prosecco to the glass and then top with ice and finally soda. Garnish with an orange wedge.
