Pink gin is also known as gin and bitters and it is, quite simply, those two ingredients. Specifically, it uses Angostura Bitters, which gives the entire drink a slight pink hue. It is a fabulous aperitif to enjoy with dinner and a great way to show off your favourite gin.
- 2 ounces Helen Browning’s organic gin
- 1 – 4 dashes Angostura Bitters
- citrus twist, for garnish
It barely counts as a recipe – in a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes, combine the gin and bitters and stir well. Start with a single dash of bitters, and taste first. Add another dash if you like the crisp, herbaceous hit. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish, serve and enjoy.
