Pink Gin

24 Jun 2012

The Pink Gin combines Plymouth Gin, perhaps the most boring vodka of gins, and Angostura Bitters, perhaps the most tedious of bitters.

Pink Gin Ingredients

Strangely, it more or less works.

Pink Gin Finished

Oh, there’s nothing pink about it, to be sure, and we’re mixing at a 2 dash per ounce ratio, not the absurd one dash per six ounce ratio of the original.

Plymouth gin is relatively mild and oh so off-dry, so the spice of the bitters comes through and makes this tolerable, if not particularly delicious. I don’t know why the British love this thing so much, but apparently that’s a fact, so there you go.
