Rutte Dry Gin
3 dash Angostura Aromatic Bitters
Top up with Tonic water


Basically a G&T with an extra pep of flavour from Angostura, this has a wider appeal than the original Pink Gin.


When I [Simon Difford] sampled my first Pink Gin, made with generous dashes of Angostura I found this classic tough to appreciate, so in 2002 I added another medicinal ingredient - tonic water, also containing quinine from cinchona bark. I'm sure I wasn't the first to add Angostura to a G&T but I've not found an earlier reference to a "Pink Gin & Tonic".

A detailed history of this drink can be found on our Pink Gin cocktail page.
