3 Delicious Pink Gin Cocktails for Spring
Pink Gin is a sweeter, tangier version of the classic dry gin, making it an exquisite addition to spring cocktails. As Pink Gin already has a unique flavour with fresh notes, you don’t have to be concerned about adding too many additional ingredients to make your cocktail taste great!
One of our favourite Pink Gins is Gordon’s Pink Gin, which is inspired by the authentic Gordon’s recipe from the 1880s. It’s exquisitely crafted to balance the invigorating taste of Gordon’s with the natural sweetness of strawberries and raspberries. This infused Pink Gin by Gordon’s also features the flavours of redcurrants, served up in an exceptional blushing tone. The drink is made using natural fruit flavours to provide the high quality, real berry taste.

Pink Collins cocktail is normally made from pink gin, lime juice, sugar, and soda water. It’s believed that the recipe was first published in 1882 in Harry Johnson’s New and Improved Bartender’s Manual, although the exact origin of the cocktail is still not confirmed.
Using Gordon’s Pink Gin gives the cocktail a light pink colour, which can be turned a shade darker by muddling raspberries or strawberries in the bottom of the glass.

Pink Gin and Raspberry Lemonade
Are you looking for something refreshing, and maybe just a little boozy? Yes? Well, this delicious pink gin and raspberry lemonade is the perfect option!
The natural pink extract from the raspberries gives this drink its splendid rosy hue, and it’s just as delicious when replacing the lemonade with tonic. We recommend using a rose lemonade for an additional touch of floral flavour.

- Gordon’s Pink Gin: 50mL
- Lemonade (also works with tonic!): 200 mL
- Splash of Limoncello (optional for extra ZING)
The Floradora is one of those classic Pink Gin drinks. This highly refreshing prohibition-era cocktail is named after a Broadway show of the same name! This floral cocktail is a glistening and fruity raspberry and lime punch that’s precisely balanced out by the deliciously spiced ginger ale. Perfect for celebrations – get ready to dance like the roaring twenties (or enjoy at a spring picnic)!
