Jaffa Cake Gin Spritz – easy gin prosecco cocktail

April 18, 2021Sew White

In this easy gin prosecco cocktail, I create a simple drink that is a perfect party drink all year round. I used Jaffa Cake gin, a lovely spirit that has the iconic chocolate and orange flavour while also being alcoholic. If you love citrus and chocolate you are going to love the chocolate orange Jaffa Cake Gin Spritz cocktail. One of the easiest gin cocktails to make.

Cocktails are always a great idea I feel and with more opportunity to make at home I have been experimenting more and more. I love creating cocktails. Especially when they are like this Jaffa Cake Gin Spritz which only have simple ingredients and takes a few minutes to bring together.

Gin and Prosecco work really well together and a few friends have been a bit trepadacious about trying it. I tell them and I will tell you too, that it’s on the level of an Aperol Sprtiz. It has similar tastes but with this gin it takes it to a new level.

This chocolate orange cocktail is beyond yummy. Although I’m sure it sounds strange to have chocolate and orange together for a cocktail. However just like in jaffa cakes and in a chocolate orange they really really work.

What do I need?

For this Jaffa Cake Gin Spritz you only need 4 ingredients!

  • Ice. There is something wonderful in a large glass full of ice to chill the glass and await a delicious cocktail on top.
  • Gin. Most importantly and the main ingredient for the gin prosecco cocktail. You can use other gins and adapt this recipe to suit your favourite gin. It will work with almost every gin. I’m saying almost as I haven’t found one that doesn’t yet but you never know what weird flavours are out there.
  • Prosecco. This gives the fizz for the gin prosecco fizz cocktail. It’s a lovely addition to cocktails and I think a few people are a bit cautious about adding it to gin but I promise it works.
  • Soda water. It adds a little dilution to the drink otherwise it would a lot of alcohol.
  • Slice of orange for the bottom of the glass (optional)
  • Jaffa cakes to sit on the glass (optional).

Review – Jaffa Cake Gin

Jaffa cakes are iconic. I think we can all agree on that.

With mad scientist (very talented alcohol makers) always looking for an excuse to create new and delicious gins it wasn’t long before they turned Jaffa Cakes into a bespoke gin.

Jaffa Cake Gin is made using fresh orange peel, cocoa powder and Jaffa cakes. Yes, actual Jaffa cakes! The finished result is a jaffa cake flavour with a crisp juniper gin base. They claim it’ll make the best Negroni mankind has ever. I haven’t tried that one yet but it is on my list.

How to garnish the Jaffa Cake Gin Spritz cocktail?

I think with such iconic flavours in one cocktail you should definitely serve with and decorate with a Jaffa Cake or two! A slice of orange in the glass works really well too.

How about a dried orange slice for the rim of the glass? Check out my how to dry oranges post below if you want to make your own. You should they are super easy and last for years. Perfect decorations for cocktails and cakes.

Dried Orange Slices
Dried orange slices are so easy to make and look fabulous. They are easy to make at home and will last for years if you look after them. Dried orange slices are perfect for decorating cakes and bakes, for being used as a garnish on your Christmas cocktails or being used for decorations around the home. I love using them as decorations on Christmas presents too.

GIN

This cocktail works with nearly all drinks. So far I haven’t found a gin this hasn’t worked with but of course, there could be a chance. Fruity gins, tart gins and weird and wacky flavour gins have worked with my experiments. Floral gins are lovely for this recipe, especially when served for a garden party on a lovely summer afternoon.

ALCOHOL FREE

It might sound weird that such an alcohol infused drink could be made alcohol but it can.

Use your favourite free gin. I really rate Seedlip alcohol-free gin. It has a lovely taste and 0% alcohol.

There are some free Prosecco varieties too which also work. Noughty is a brand I’ve featured before and they are very good. A delicious bottle of bubbles with no alcohol in.

What can I serve with it?

The best things you can serve this easy gin prosecco cocktail with has to be Jaffa Cakes. It’s also lovely as a drink before meal. It also works really well with light summer salads and even chocolate or citrus puddings. It’s a hugely adaptable drink for that reason. Here are a few of my recipes I think would pair with it really well.
