Try this deliciously festive gin and tonic recipe from The Oxley

We're flexing on our bar cart this season with a festive update to a classic. Try out this delicious winter gin and tonic recipe from The Oxley in Yorkville.

Serves 1

Preparation time 10 minutes

Something about the changing of the seasons makes us want to dive headfirst into our gin collection. Luckily for us, we don't need to rely on stale G&Ts to make us feel festive when there are so many great holiday cocktails out there. The Oxley is giving us life with a wintery gin and tonic recipe that you can easily whip up for guests. 

“I love this very English and seasonal twist on a classic from my team at The Oxley," says Andrew Carter, the executive chef and owner of the Yorkville pub and restaurant. "The combination of the Whitley Neill Dry Gin and the slightly sweet nature and depth of sloe gin brings complexity and balance to this classic.”

Don't just take his word for it — grab your gin, Campari and some tonic, then decorate your masterpiece with some seasonal cranberries for a finishing touch. 


  • 1 oz Whitney Neill dry gin
  • 1 oz sloe gin
  • ½ oz Campari
  • 1 dash cranberry bitters
  • Fever Tree Tonic, to top


  1. Add the gin, sloe gin, Campari and cranberry bitters to a collins glass filled with ice.
