Review:

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

History:

When I sampled my first Pink Gin, made with generous dashes of bitters 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 Bitters to a G&T but I've not found an earlier reference to a "Pink Gin & Tonic". Also see Pink Gin cocktail history.
