One Bottle of Gin, 5 Fresh Cocktails

No bitters? No liqueurs? No problem. If you have a bottle of gin, then a quick trip to the grocery store is all you need to make these fresh and delicious drinks, which all appear in The One-Bottle Cocktail: More than 80 Recipes with Fresh Ingredients and a Single Spirit.

BAY OF BENGAL

This gin cocktail from bartender Collin Nicholas gets its richness from coconut cream and its alluringly savory side from curry powder. If you don’t have gin on hand, you can also use blanco tequila or pisco.

GIN ROCKET

This easy spin on the gimlet from bartender Kate Bolton uses fresh fennel and arugula for a pepper-and-anise flavor that’s perfect for springtime entertaining.

SLIPPERY WHEN WET

A touch of Greek yogurt adds tartness and just a little richness to this delicate strawberry and gin cocktail from bartender Shannon Tebay Sidle.

POLICE & THIEVES

Pineapple and cinnamon take gin to the tropical side in this one-bottle drink from bartender Frank Cisneros. Tangy grapefruit and lime keep things bright.

3 BEET HIGH & RISING

Don’t have fancy Italian vermouth on hand? This fizzy pomegranate and gin cocktail from bartender Chris Morris gets similar rich bass notes and earthy sweetness by combining beet juice (a bottled one like Love Beets works fine) and a few drops of vanilla extract.
