Pink Gin

Pink GinPink Gin sounds like the name of a Harry Styles song, and also the kind of drink best shared with galentines which is why it seemed a perfect time to share this ahead of Mother’s day, because so many people don’t have great relationships with their mother’s but other women have become that safe place for them. I’d love to know who you’d share a glass or two of this cocktail with in the comments below!

Regardless of my marital status, the importance of friendships can never be underestimated and this is the best drink to share with loved ones, whether it’s over a Mother’s Day brunch, valentines day or quite frankly, a night hanging out with friends where you’re making cocktails and laughing.

Mother’s day isn’t something we do in my house (holiday’s aren’t a thing), but this Pink Gin doesn’t really need a special occasion to be made because it’s one of the easiest cocktails to make and only requires one type of liquor!

Whilst there are many different types of pre made Pink Gin available to buy, making this drink at home couldn’t be easier! So before you go out and buy a bottle, pull out your Angostura bitters and definitely make some simple syrup because you’ll want to sweeten it up and definitely garnish with the twist of lemon zest which will imbue this with a lovely flavor!

Pink Gin History

The history of the Pink Gin cocktail is actually super interesting and we can thank the British Royal Navy for this cocktail which was a way to make Angostura bitters more enjoyable which was being used as a treatment for sea sickness.

How to prepare Pink Gin

  • Stir: Pour all ingredients and ice into a jug and stir.
  • Strain: Strain into your serving glasses.
  • Serve: Serve immediately.

Tips for the best Pink Gin

Chilled glasses: Pink Gin is best served in chilled glasses so you’ll want to pop these into your fridge for 1 hour or freezer for 20 minutes prior to making these cocktails.

Strong cocktail: One of these is strong!!! Also, it leans more to a less sweet profile, so you might want to double the simple syrup in each cocktail to get that sweet spot on making this taste right for your preferences.

Garnish: The lemon zest twist is quite difficult to hold in place, so you could opt to skewer with a toothpick to keep it’s shape.
