June 13 is celebrated as World Gin Day and there is no better way to celebrate it than with a stiff glass with friends and family. Gin was originally distilled as a medicinal liquor that derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries. Nowadays, it is produced with a variety of herbal and botanical ingredients, spice, floral or fruit-flavours aside from juniper. Due to its raw and organic taste components, Gin is an ideal liquor for experimenting with different mixes. No matter what the occasion, with Gin, it is a guaranteed good time, be it a college frat party or an elegant highbrowed gathering.

If you are looking to expand your Gin experience, here are some Gin cocktail recipes that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home:
