Crafting the Perfect Gin Punch


To create a gin punch that will leave your guests raving, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 750 ml of a Brogans Way Gin of your choice: Choose from our range of gins, such as the Everyday Salvation or the Strawberry Gin, depending on your flavour preference.
  • 1 litre of fresh citrus juice: A mix of orange, lemon, and lime juice for a balanced tangy base.
  • 750 ml of soda water: Adds a fizzy touch that makes the punch refreshing.
  • 500 ml of simple syrup: Adjust the sweetness to your taste.
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves: Adds a burst of herbal freshness.
  • Sliced fresh fruits: Oranges, lemons, strawberries, and cucumbers for garnish and added flavour.
  • Ice: To keep the punch chilled.


Prepare the Citrus Base: In a large punch bowl, combine the fresh citrus juices. This mix will be the zesty backbone of your punch.

  • Add the Gin: Pour in 750 ml of your chosen Brogans Way gin. This step is crucial as the quality of the gin determines the overall flavour profile. Our distillery’s gins are crafted to ensure they blend seamlessly in cocktails, providing a smooth and aromatic experience.
  • Sweeten It Up: Add the simple syrup to the mixture. Depending on your taste, you might want to start with 250 ml and increase as needed. Remember, you can always add more sweetness, but you can’t take it away!
  • Mix in Soda Water: To give your punch a delightful fizz, stir in the soda water.
  • Garnish and Chill: Add plenty of ice to the bowl to keep the punch cold. Then, drop in the fresh mint leaves and sliced fruits. These not only look appealing but also infuse the punch with additional flavours as they sit.
  • Serve: Ladle the punch into glasses filled with ice, ensuring each serving gets a bit of fruit and mint.
