Welcome to the world the Gin and Tonic Cheesecake!

Combining your favourite cocktail with your favourite dessert!

The perfect adults-only dessert to enjoy after Christmas Lunch.

Best of all, it’s a No-Bake Cheesecake – so you can make it a few days in advance!


  1. For the lemon and juniper curd, whisk whole eggs, yolks and sugar in a saucepan until smooth, then place pan over a low heat.

  2. Add the butter, juniper berries, lemon zest and juice and cornflour, and whisk continuously until thickened (about 10 minutes). Strain through a sieve into a bowl.

  3. Preheat the oven to 150°C. Grease a 20cm springform pan and line base and side with baking paper. Wrap outside of pan with aluminium foil to make watertight.

  4. To make the base, place biscuits and butter in a food processor and whiz to combine. Press crumb mixture into base of prepared pan. Chill until needed.

  5. To make the filling, place cream cheese and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat until smooth.

  6. Add the cornflour and beat until combined. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

  7. Beat in sour cream, lemon zest, tonic water and gin until combined. Pour cream cheese mixture over base.

  8. Place cheesecake pan in a large, deep baking dish. Fill dish with boiling water halfway up the side of cheesecake pan.

  9. Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes or until cheesecake is mostly set. Carefully top with curd and bake for a further 10 minutes or until set with a slight wobble.

  10. Turn off oven. Stand cheesecake in oven with the door closed for 1 hour, then remove pan from water bath and set cheesecake aside to cool to room temperature. Chill cooled cheesecake for at least 3 hours or until firm.

  11. Meanwhile, for the gin and bay lemons, place all ingredients in a large frypan and place over high heat, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.

  12. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, turning halfway, for 20 minutes or until lemon is tender. Set aside to cool completely.

  13. Remove cheesecake from pan, transfer to a fancy plate and serve!
