Pink Gin

Pink Gin
  • 2 oz Plymouth Gin
  • 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Pink Gin is a cocktail made fashionable in the United Kingdom in the mid-19th century. Pink gin is a typically English way of enjoying gin. It is widely agreed that the drink was first created by members of the Royal Navy. Plymouth gin is a 'sweet' gin, as opposed to London gin which is 'dry', and this was a way of making this variety of gin, with added Angostura bitters more enjoyable. Pour the bitters into a wine glass. Swirl the glass to coat the inside with the bitters, shake out the excess. Pour the gin into the glass. Do not add ice. Serve.
