Pink Gin Fizz Cocktails

Pink Gin and Sparkling Wine Cocktails

It’s not only wine that’s going pink, but it’s Gin too, and we have two bottles of it here to create a couple of Pink Gin Cocktails with.

We will also need two bottles of Sparkling Wine, I’ve not gone for Rosé as I want the Pink Gin to showcase its colour more.

I’ve drawn inspiration for these Cocktails from the Pink Lady Cocktail, both the Cocktails are pink in colour and delicious in flavour with strawberries included in both.

The Sweet, Pink & Creamy Cocktail

I’ll introduce the Pink Gin & Sparkling Wine I used in this Cocktail and then explain what you’ll need and how to make one.

Greyson’s Premium Pink Gin

This Gin is available at Aldi for only £12.99

Greyson’s Premium Pink Gin Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Creamy white strawberry.”

Taste – “Strawberry along with raspberry candy and blackberry flavours.”

The Italian Sparkling Wine

Cantina di Solopaca has 1300 hectares of vineyards, they produce about 120 thousand hectoliters of wine.

Cantina Sociale di Solopaca was created in 1966 when 25 farmers decided to come together and set up the company.
