Vintage Cocktails #28: Pink Gin

The next drink in my series, is the Pink Gin. This cocktail is a serious fireball. It contains only gin and bitters, and you had better be a fan of both if you are going to enjoy this drink. The secret to this drink is to use Plymouth gin. Plymouth is not a London Dry gin, and it’s style is a suitable backdrop for the Angostura Bitters.

For me, while the drink was ok, I felt as the spicy notes of the bitters didn’t come through quite enough. Even though I really like both gin and bitters, it was not a winner for me.
