How To Make Pink Gin

Do you love strawberries, raspberries and gin? Then this tasty treat will be perfect for you! We’ve put together a lovely, easy recipe, so you can make a pink gin of your very own, or give it to your favourite gin lover as a gift.

It only takes 15 minutes (max) and then 2-3 weeks in the fridge before you can sit back, relax and bring back the taste of summer with a gorgeously fruity G&T.

INGREDIENTS & EQUIPMENT
Empty bottle/s
Tupperware tub/ glass jar
70cl bottle of gin (if you want to try a smaller amount, just split the quantities in half)
400g punnet of strawberries, sliced
200g raspberries
1 large spoonful caster sugar
Simple syrup to taste

METHOD

Pink GinUse a large bowl, pour in your gin, add the strawberries and caster sugar and stir. Then pour into a large, sterilised* tupperware tub/jar. It’s that easy!

Store in the fridge and gently shake every two days to infuse for 3-4 weeks. Strain through coffee filters or muslin cloth to serve.

A few days before you plan to drink it have a taste - if you want it a bit sweeter make a simple sugar syrup by mixing equal parts boiling water and sugar and add until you are happy. Pour into your bottle and voila!
