Quick Reference

Pink gin, the traditional tipple of crusty British admirals, once downed in wardrooms throughout the Seven Seas, is a drink of gin mixed with a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters, which give it a pinkish colour. The Royal Navy is said to favour Plymouth to London gin as the base spirit, since it is fuller in flavour.
