Japanese Roku Gin Cocktail with Orange Blossom Syrup is a perfect drink for the cozy holiday season. The botanical flavors from the highly fragrant gin make this drink refreshing and light. Great as a pre-dinner cocktail!


  • 1 ounce Roku gin
  • 1 ounce Saint Germain
  • 1-ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1.5 ounces orange blossom syrup
  • 4-5 cubes of ice
  • 1-3 ounces tonic water, as needed


  1. Squeeze lime for fresh lime juice. Lemon juice will work too.
  2. Add Roku gin, St German, orange blossom syrup, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker.
  3. Add ice to the shaker, then gently shake until it's cold to the touch. 
  4. Pour into a cocktail glass.
  5. Add tonic water and garnish with your favorite herbs and spices! That's it! Enjoy. 


  • Use cocktail sugar for a more celebratory feel. Mix the colors of the sugar to match the theme of your party or season.
  • Infuse your Roku with other dried herbs like chrysanthemum, dried rose petals, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, or any of your favorite herbs. Mix an herb with the Roku in a glass jar for 24-48 hours before use. 
  • Making your kaffir lime syrup will elevate this cocktail to another level! Simple mix sugar with kaffir lime leaves at a 1-1 ratio until the sugar dissolve. Let cool before use. 
  • Adds aromatic bitters for a stronger herbaceous taste. Use only a little bit. A few drops go a long way.
