Cocktail Recipe: You’re Grounded by Melbourne Gin

Emerging craft gin label Melbourne Gin has just come from securing a Double Gold metal at the 2020 SIP Awards for the second year in a row, which certainly bodes well for their inventive releases as of late.

To see what they’ve been playing around with in terms of flavour we hit them up for a simple and straight forward cocktail recipe to help home bartenders make a boring old Monday feel like the weekend.

See below for the flavour-rich You’re Grounded cocktail, developed by Abacus bartender Robbie to lift the signature of Melbourne Gin.


  • 45ml Espresso (Martyr Single Original Blend is ideal)
  • 45ml Melbourne Gun
  • 15ml Orange Curacao
  • 15ml Brown Sugar Gomme
  • Garnish: Flamed orange zest, chocolate dust.


Melbourne Gin is available to enjoy across Melbourne and Victoria, or available online at
