12 fabulously pink gin cocktails that look as good as they taste!

12 fabulously pink gin cocktails that look as good as they taste!

Feb 3, 2023

Pink gin is a firm favourite here at Craft Gin Club, and we’ve tasted so many beautiful craft pink gins, it’s proof that decent pink gin doesn’t have to be overly sweet or lacking in flavour (like the ones you may find on the supermarket shelves).

If you haven’t dipped your toe in the pink gin world, then check out our Pink Gin Explorer Set (it makes the perfect pink gin gift) and is an easy entry into this exciting category!

What’s more, if you want to know more about where pink gin comes from, how pink gin is made, what it tastes like, and more, then you need to checkout out our spotlight on pink gin

Before we begin, let’s start by explaining…

What’s the difference between cocktails using pink gin and pink cocktails that contain gin?

It can be confusing as they both look the same…

A pink gin cocktail will contain pink gin as the base of the drink, whereas a pink cocktail may contain classic gin. A pink cocktail may owe it’s pretty colour to another ingredient in the tipple that’s not the gin - such as a cocktail syrup, garnish, liqueur or mixer. We have cocktail recipes below that tick both boxes!

If you are looking for an easy pink gin cocktail, a pink gin and prosecco cocktail, or fruity pink gin cocktail, then take a look at these blushing beauties below! Even better? They taste as gorgeous as they look!

1 egg white (optional)
1-2 dashes rose water
