All the ways you can drink your pink gin
Three easy cocktail recipes with ingredients you may already have at your pantry
Oct 19, 2018
At the end of the day, it’s nice to have a glass or two of your favorite alcoholic beverage. Apart from lightening the mood, alcohol is a good icebreaker on special occasions.
Some people prefer a bottle of beer while others would rather have a glass of wine. In recent months, however, there has been a significant spike in the gin segment. Social drinkers have apparently rediscovered this classic drink, making it popular in cocktail parties and get-togethers. Of particular interest, especially with millennials, is pink gin, which has made a remarkable impression among young social drinkers because of its Instagrammable aesthetics.
It’s a good thing then that Emperador Distillers recently introduced The BaR Premium Gin. Easily available in groceries and convenience stores, the new gin line comes in three variants: berry-flavored Pink Gin, lime-rich Green Gin, and classic Clear Dry Gin. Infused with botanicals from Spain, The BaR Premium Gin is a must-try.
Drinking The BaR Premium Gin with just ice or tonic water is enough. However, there are other ways to enjoy the gin—especially the elegant and fruity Pink Gin that highlights the sweetness and acidity of strawberries, making it easier to drink and a go-to cocktail base. Here are some recipes to make the most out of it:
