How to Make the Perfect Gordon’s Pink Gin & Tonic

How to Make the Perfect Gordon’s Pink Gin & Tonic

How can you not love this gorgeous cocktail? It’s so simple and it’s so pretty. I remember the first time I saw gin turn pink and thought it was a magic drink. Now you can get it anytime with no magic involved!

Originally, pink gin was a simple combination of gin and a few dashes of Angostura bitters. Pink gin was all the rage in the 19th century and, now 200 years later, is taking the gin drinking world by storm. Even James Bond was a fan of it when he wasn’t drinking martinis! Check out The Man with the Golden Gun.

In the olden days, the bitters gave it a red hue. Now in the 21st century, Gordon’s Pink Gin is all a-blush with hints of red fruit like strawberries, raspberries and red currants giving it a sweetness that is otherwise not present in traditional gin.

Making Gordon’s Pink Gin & Tonic couldn’t be easier. Just a jigger of the gin, top up with tonic and then add a few red fruits or a lemon twist as a garnish. Of course, you need loads of ice!

As for tonic, I love Fever-Tree Tonic or Fever-Tree Elderflower tonic if you want to try a slightly different flavor, but don’t be afraid to try another brand you love. You can also add lemonade, if you don’t love tonic. I definitely prefer Simply Lemonade (which goes so well with Bourbon, but that’s another story!).

Top Tip(ples): If you want to try another Gordon’s Gin cocktail, don’t miss the Gordon’s Watermelon Royale or the Gordon’s Pink Gin Spritz!
