Today will be another drink, and this one in particular I had a hard time trying out.

As I have said before, I am really not that much into the pure alcohol taste, so my boyfriend and I have had a bottle of gin for I don’t know how many years, without ever getting to use it.
That is until we sat one summer evening together with my mother and we casually said we had never used it, and she told us: haven’t you just made a Gin Hass – it was clear to see that no. We had not.

Somehow I had told myself that the only drink you can make with gin, is a gin & tonic, and boy am I embarrassed to say that out loud right now.

So we ventured into the unknown, with gin in hand, and found a good syrup and some soda; and then we went crazy:

And as always you may also watch this on my YouTube Channel 🙂


5 minutes.

Ingredients (1 drink):

  • Two ice cubes
  • 1-2 cl gin
  • 3 cl mango syrup
  • Juice of ¼ lime
  • 10 cl lemon soda (Sprite, Faxe Kondi, Carlsberg sport)
  • ¼ lime in a wedge


  1. Put in the ice cubes.
  2. Pour in gin depending on how strong you like it.
  3. Pour in the mango syrup.
  4. Squeeze the lime juice of ¼ lime into the drink.
  5. Pour in the soda.
  6. Stir to make sure the syrup has dissolved.
  7. Put in the lime wedge.

This drink was quite easy to make and looks good (and tastes good) no matter what glass you put it in; so if you are like me, and never get to drinking your gin – try a Gin Hass because DANG it tastes good.
In case you want to know the actual taste: It tastes like lemon soda with a hint of mango and some flowery notes (the flowery notes comes from our gin, but of course it can differ depending on which gin you have)

Do be careful when choosing the syrup though, we tried it with two different ones, and one of them is WAY too sweet and overpowering, so we really have to ration it to get the “right” taste.

If you have ever tried a Gin Hass I would love to know, so tell me in the comments down below – I am curious if you make it like we do!

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time.
