Episode 22: In the Pink – Pink Gin

For a pink drink that is nothing more than a glass of gin with Angostura bitters, Pink Gin wins the award for being the simplest cocktail with the most obvious name. With so few ingredients, it can’t be that strong though, right? Don’t let the color fool you, it is nothing more than a glass of gin with a few more dashes of booze. For flavor.

Pink Gin is commonly known as a tradition of British Royal Navy officers, but did it actually start there? Join us this episode as we explore this drink’s place in Navy life, the use of gin and bitters as medicine, and the history of the one of the most famous cocktail ingredients, Angostura Bitters.

The recipe is:

  • 3 ounces of gin
  • 6 dashes of Angostura bitters
