Saturday, June 13 is World Gin Day. That’s right, an entire day dedicated to our favorite juniper-based spirit.

To celebrate the occasion, bartenders across the country are shaking up some gin cocktails with Caorunn, the small-batch Scottish gin made with foraged Celtic botanicals. From the classic gin and tonic to a fun and boozy Caorunn infused milkshake, below are four recipes to help celebrate World Gin Day.
