5 Best Pink Gins to Try This Year

A pretty pink gin might make your next cocktail blush.

Did you know that pink gin first emerged as a cocktail made popular in mid-19th century England? Then, it was created using a hearty dash of dark red Angostura bitters and slightly sweetened, crystal clear Plymouth gin. The resulting tipple was pink in color and delightfully easy to drink.

Today, pink gin usually refers to a juniper-based spirit that is… (hold on to your gin and tonic, this is going to blow your lime right out of the glass) pink! From cherry blossoms and jasmine to savory bitters and rhubarb, here are the five best pink gins to try this year.
