A Proper Pink Gin is made using a top notch quality gin infused with Angostura Bitters (a dark red bitters that gives the drink it’s pink-yness). It was all the rage in the mid-20th century, with more pop culture references than you can shake a stick at. From movies like Perfect Strangers to TV shows like Agatha Christie’s Poirot.
But its true origin is said to hail from the 1800’s; the brainchild of the British Royal Navy. Bitters were widely used to treat sea sickness but, it wasn’t going down too well among the troops. So, they had an idea that we can totally get on board with - add gin.
