This is a classic drink every gin lover should embrace — not literally because then you might look slovenly. Just hold with one hand.

Pink Gin

  • 4-5 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 1/2 measures gin
  • ice water

Swirl bitters in the bottom of a tumbler to coat. Add gin. Top with ice water to taste. Garnish with a cocktail onion.


About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    I can’t believe I’ve never tried bitters with gin before! Hm, this is now on my must-try list (being the gin addict that I am). Thanks as always for your alcoinnovation. And… yep, top-notch photo!

    Don’t judge me for holding this with two hands. Or giving it a giant bear hug. See, I’m secure in my manhood. I’ll gladly embrace pink gin. And your artsy photo.

  5. Gin will make you arty like that!

  6. I love gin (speaking of seeming slovenly…) and I used to know a horse called Pink Gin and I never knew what that meant. So now you have both solved a mystery for me and given me something new to do with gin. Thank you!

    I actually love the reflection on the board, very nice shot. Not a fan of gin due to a horrific experience many moons ago (must have been something I ate!) 😉

  8. Ha! I like the arty!

    Love. It. The drink (simplicity!) and the arty photo, too.
