Pink Gin Cocktail Recipe

The pink gin is also called gin and bitters, and it is simply those two ingredients combined. This drink sticks to a specific Angostura bitters recipe, which adds a slight tint of pink. This is a great way to show off your favorite bottles of gin and a fabulous aperitif to enjoy while dining. Originally developed for use by the Royal Navy, this cocktail has become a classic. Seamen would often take bitters as a medicinal treatment as early as the 1800s. The gin would have enhanced the flavor, and making it more palatable with a little gin would have made it more appealing. There are also stories of 19th-century sailing, such as those by William, that use the term “gin pahit.” A Somerset Maugham story. Pahit means bitter in Malay, and it is essentially the same drink as it was centuries ago, but the name has been lost to time.
