It’s been a great year for the gin drinker, what with science confirming that we’re sexy as hell, and the fact that as of right now pink gin just became a thing. 2017, just when we thought you were a write off you pulled through, thanks!
But, buckle up gin-lovers, because we’ve got something that will trump frosè, or espresso martinis on tap, and have you high-fiving your bartender. Allow us to introduce the pink gin and tonic. Yes–that’s correct, your OG fave the gin and tonic has had a very, very chic makeover and its name is Fever-Tree Pink Aromatic tonic water.
What’s it like? Imagine a very extra pink cocktail but sans the sickly-sweet taste and you’re halfway there.
Yes, this does mean that you can get your bartender on at home. Because if you ask us, Netflix is the best club of 2017. In fact, here's how:
- Fill a tall glass with ice
- Follow with a splash of your desired amount of gin
- Fill the remainder of the glass with pink Fever-Tree Aromatic Tonic
- Rub a slice of lemon around the rim and add to your concoction
- Drink up!
