3 Gordon’s Pink Gin Cocktails

First of all let’s see something about Gordon’s dry gin. 

Created by Alexander Gordon that believed that the success of his gin is the combination of pure distilled grain spirit and rich botanicals. 

We will play and create some drinks today with the Gordon’s premium pink distilled gin. 

This one was inspired by an original recipe from the 1880s. It combines in a perfect balance the gin and the sweetness of raspberries and strawberries with a splash of redcurrant. 

You can read a lot more about their products and history here.
