Beefeater Pink Gin is a vibrant new strawberry gin from Beefeater London.
Created by master distiller Desmond Payne MBE, it’s based on the classic award-winning Beefeater Dry recipe and flavored with strawberry.
In a marketplace of flavored spirits, it’s the first gin in the U.S. to be naturally flavored with hints of strawberry.
The sweet strawberry aroma and flavor are joined by the classic Beefeater finish of soft juniper and citrus.
This is an enjoyable gin for neat sipping: It’s more fun gin than serious gin, with a lovely, rosy aesthetic.
Beefeater Pink was created with cocktails in mind, and it’s ready to party.
Pink is trending in wine and spirits categories, first with rosé wines, and now in the gin category.
Mother’s Day is coming up, and plan ahead for Valentine’s Day. There’s a special rose cocktail recipe below.
If you can’t find Beefeater Pink locally, you can buy it online at Reserve Bar, if your state allows mail order alcohol.
There are a number of Beefeater Pink cocktails and boozy milkshakes to check out on the brand’s website.
Recipes include Frozen Pink Daiquiri, Pink & Tonic, Pink Mimosa, Pink Punch, Pink Spritz and Strawberry Lemonade.
With all of the drink options, you’re ready for a Drink Pink party. Here are two takes on a Pink Party menu:
Ingredients Per Drink
1. MAKE the rose syrup. Combine in a small pot, 2 parts granulated sugar to one part water and 1 part dried rose bud tea. Stir the mixture and place it on the stove over medium heat.
Stir regularly until the sugar has dissolved. Do not boil! Cool the mixture and strain.
2. MEASURE all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until cold. Strain into a coupe or martini glass and garnish with edible flowers.
THE FLAVORS OF GIN
Gin is one of the more complex spirits, in terms of the layering of botanicals (herbs, fruits and spices). Each brand of gin has its own proprietary recipe.
Gin begins with a neutral grain spirit imbued with select blend of botanicals; the conventional ones are listed here.
