Gin & Tonic Pancakes

While you could have a normal pancake Tuesday, why not make Gin & Tonic Pancakes instead?

Think of it as a kind of, two birds one stone food option. Dinner and a drink, in one.

This is the perfect recipe for an adult Pancake Tuesday.

Using fresh lemon and lime juice, gin, and a can of gin and tonic, this recipe couldn’t be easier to make.

What you need:

  • Juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime
  • Lemon and lime zest
  • 3tbsp sugar
  • 3tbsp gin
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 250g gin and tonic can
  • 50ml milk
  • knob of butter


  • cocktail sticks and cocktail umbrellas


  1. To make the lemon and lime zest topping for this pancake recipe, peel the zest from a lemon and curl the zest around a cocktail stick. Repeat with the zest of a lime, also peeling it around a cocktail stick.
  2. To make the gin and tonic syrup, Squeeze the lemon juice and lime juice into a pan and add the sugar and gin. Boil the mixture for three minutes.
  3. To make the gin and tonic pancakes, place the flour in a bowl and add the egg and can of gin and tonic. Whisk the mixture until smooth.
  4. Melt the butter in a pan and spoon the pancake mixture to make small pancakes.
  5. Once cooked, stack the pancakes on a plate and then drizzle the gin and tonic syrup over the top.
  6. Decorate with the lemon and lime zest, and a cocktail umbrella if you like, before serving.
