Petal Pink Cocktail

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. 

Petal Pink

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.

 You'll Need:

30 ml Eden Mill Love Gin, or similar rose-forward, floral pink gin

1 large fresh strawberry, hulled

25 ml simple sugar syrup teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

about 75 ml well-chilled sparkling pale rosé wine

edible rose petal, to garnish

ice cubes

Serves 1


Put the strawberry and sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker and lightly crush. Add the gin and lemon juice and a handful of ice cubes and shake. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and slowly top up with the sparkling wine. Garnish with a rose petal and serve immediately.

60 ml J.J. Whitley Pink Cherry Gin, or similar cherry-flavored pink gin

15 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

15 ml simple sugar syrup

200 ml well-chilled sparkling fruity rosé wine edible flowers or fresh cherries, to garnish (optional)

ice cubes
