"Cold Gin" is a song by the American hard rock band KISS, featured on their debut album in 1974. The song was written by guitarist Ace Frehley and sung by bassist Gene Simmons. The songs refers to the stimulating effect that cold gin supposedly has on the male sex drive. The song credits cold gin as the only thing that keeps the couple together in a troubled relationship.

There was a KISS tribute band from Los Angeles named after this classic song featuring KISS member, Tommy Thayer as Ace Frehley, Jaime St. James as Peter Criss, Spiro Papadatos as Gene Simmons and Anthony White as Paul Stanley.

"Cold Gin" was also covered by the alternative metal group, Disturbed at a one time tribute show to Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott. It was known to be the guitarist's favorite song. The live performance was performed with members of Drowning Pool and Anthrax live on stage, featuring David Draiman on vocals. Vinnie Paul was on drums.

Pantera and Skid Row performed the song together live while the bands were on tour together in 1992. The performance was taped and included on Pantera's 2000 home video, "3 Vulgar Videos from Hell".

Ace Frehley noted "I wrote "Cold Gin" in a New York subway, in my head, both lyrics and music. I had a spiral notebook with me. I never took a guitar lesson, nobody believes that. I didn't realize it was gonna become a KISS classic."
