Browsing through videos from Robert Hess‘s show The Cocktail Spirit (on the Small Screen Network), I was reminded of the Pink Gin, a cocktail I made back at the beginning of this adventure, before I started writing down what I was making. It is dead simple to make, with only two ingredients: gin and Angostura bitters.
There are two results for Pink Gin in CocktailDB. I’ve made both. They differ slightly, in that the first washes the glass with bitters in addition to mixing bitters with the gin, whereas the second does not. The proportions of gin to bitters are basically the same, and can be varied to taste.
- 1 1/2 oz. gin
- a dash or four of Angostura bitters
Add the gin and bitters to a mixing glass. Add ice, then stir briskly to chill. Strain into a cocktail glass.
