New Generation Gins

379 posts in this topic

The one time I tried to make a Pink Gin I used five "goodly" dashes, and found the result not to my liking in the least. So I'm wondering if I would like a more modest dashing (or even dropping--Wondrich suggests three drops!), or maybe the Pink Gin is just not for me. (For the record I quite like Angostura-heavy drinks in the sour & tiki & flip directions.)

Oddly enough, I don't think I've ever tried it with just a small amount of bitters!  I suppose I should.  Ted Haigh's recipe was the first time I encountered the drink, so I went ahead and made it that way, and liked it.  It's not something I make very often, though.  I had it in a restaurant once by requesting "Gin & Bitters," and even though I had no idea how much bitters was used, it tasted fine. I imagine the bartender raised an eyebrow upon receiving the order!  Three drops, however, sounds rather minimal.  I might have to do some experimenting . . .
