Pink gin has never been more popular so why not shake up your own rosy-hued cocktails at home with the perfectly pink recipes from Pink Gin? All gins start with a neutral spirit base, which is then infused with juniper and other botanicals, such as spices, citrus, berries and flowers, to give each one a unique taste and its ‘style’. These recipes are floral and delicious and easy to make at home.
This is a pretty and elegant cocktail with a delicate floral perfume thanks to the inclusion of a pink gin infused with rose petals and hibiscus.
