Prepare your highball glasses because we're celebrating World Gin Day this June 12!

From World Iced Tea Day to International Burger Day, the world has created too many "days" specifically devoted to the most random things. But no matter who or why they made it up, we'll take any reason to celebrate with a drink in hand.

As we celebrate one of the most well-loved liquors in the world, it's time to shake things up a bit and leave your gin & tonic at rest (for now). Below, check out a few gin cocktail recipes we found from brands that we love: Hendrick's, Santa Ana Gin, and Aviation Gin.

Happy World Gin Day!
