hey, me and some friends got hold of a bottle of gin last night, and it tasted god awful. It tasted kind of like liquefied wood. so does anyone have any recommendations on what to mix it with to make it taste less bad?

Go buy some tonic. Then squeeze a lime into it. It's scrumptious.

Squirt.
To me when you mix gin and squirt, it tastes like red pop.
Can't even taste the gin at all..
Simply amazing.
That's the only thing I've ever mixed it with...not a big liquor drinker.

I think Orange juice mixes quite well with Gin.

Fair enough.

You should be able to buy a big bottle of Canda Dry Tonic Water at most grocery stores. Un-Carded I believe.

Or you can use like Fanta, but I'm not a big fan of that.

Well, when a man is being pleasured he...

oh, its a citrus soda like a sprite or 7up. I definitely second mixing it with some gin. Its a good combo IMO. Experiment with some fruitier (literally not like in a gay way) flavors, nothing too heavy.

As far as bad combos go, don't ever mix SoCo and cream soda. It tastes like antacid.

EDIT: I also remembered Everclear and Iced Tea are a bad combo, in fact when I did it they didn't even mix well physically so the Everclear ended up on the top.

As others have said - Gin and Tonic. Twist of lime. My drink of choice when flying.

A general room to follow is if its a dark liquor, mix it with something dark. like whiskey and Dr. P or Coke. With Gin you should find a lighter soda/beverage like orange soda or grape soda. Some gin just tastes like ass.

i recently discovered some carbonated fruit drinks that are supposedly "loaded with nutrients". alone they don't taste too great, but they mask the taste of vodka almost completely.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

First of all, gin is fantastic! I can't get enough of it I mix it with two things:

1: sprite or 7up - hint of lime is the best, or Fresca, which is actually my favourite thing to use.
2: your juice/pop of choice. Purple crush, orange crush, orange juice (great if you want less sugar, ie if you're playing a drinking game with it), iced tea works. I've done lots of other ones, but those are my favourites. By far my favourite drink <3

edit: quite possibly the best thing about this is I can put 4 to 6 'shots' in a drink and it still tastes wonderful. A general rule for me is about a third gin, a third of something clear and carbonated, and a third of something tasty and coloured. Maybe a tad less than a third gin; actually, i toss ice in first, then make it a third of the cup - obviously the ice displaces some space and thus you add the gin first and it's not fully a third of the cup as booze. Best. Thing. Ever.

If you can't take it straight - then you're a gay poofter. I love the taste of gin, it's just too strong for many people I know; but, if you must mix it, orange juice is the best option.

Pour it over ice with a little bit of tonic water and add some lime juice.

Chilled liquor is MUCH MUCH smoother tasting than room-temp liquor.

Really? I love Bombay Sapphire, but it's probably dry which means you do NOT want to ingest it straight.

The worst type of liquor I've ever had was some Canadian whiskey straight. Even mixing it it still tasted terrible. Jack Daniels for the win!

Gin martini. Almost as good as a vodka martini. And Orange Blossoms are great...

did you know that martinis are by nature a gin-based cocktail? vodka martinis are the special case (although they have eclipsed gin in popularity)

martini : gin poured over and stirred with ice, vermouth (optional), a lil olive juice (optional). then it is either strained and served in a chilled glass (martini "up") or on ice ("on the rocks"). while gin is technically the primary liquor used in a martini vodka is also a popular choice.
