More than 30 pink-hued cocktails
Pink gin has never been more popular so why not shake up your own rosy-hued cocktails at home with more than 25 perfectly-pink recipes.
'Pink gin' was originally a simple cocktail of London Dry Gin seasoned with a dash of angostura bitters, but recently this term has blossomed and is now used to describe any gin infused with pink or red fruits, plants or spices alongside the usual botanicals found in the spirit. These include strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb, pink grapefruit, rhubarb, sloes and rose petals and the resulting blush-coloured and fragrant spirits can be enjoyed in a range of delicious cocktails. From the simplest gin and tonic or a straight-up pink martini to bartenders' favourites the Clover Club, Gimlet and Tom Collins, a pink gin will add extra pep to your drinking experience.
Established brands with international reach such as Gordon's and Beefeater have recently added pink gins to their ranges, plus sunshine-fuelled Mediterranean distillers such as Spanish Larios and Italian Malfy are all creating elegant fruit-infused gins in highly desirable bottles. So whether you’re a gin expert wanting to update a beloved classic cocktail, relatively new to the gin scene and keen to try the latest innovations, or have simply found that fruitier tipple is your thing, you'll find all the pink gin inspiration you need here.
