You Have to Try These Perfect Pink Gin Cocktails!...

I was lucky enough to be joined last week by two of the biggest gin influencers in the UK. They not only signed up to giving me their thoughts on our new Raspberry Pink Gin, but they also each made a delicious cocktail with our new gin.


Carol from Chigwell, Essex aka @grandmasginparlour is in her words, 'Just a gin loving Grandma!' She is however much more than that! A gin collector and amateur mixologist, she went on to create a sublime Raspberry and Lime Cocktail.


Debbie from Berkshire, known to us all on Instagram as @ginstaburge is super talented, this year being a Judge for The Gin Guide Awards. Debbie is a content creator, and also collaborates and provides consultation services for gin brands. I created Debbie's Fiery Pink Gin Cocktail straight after our Live as couldn't resist it!


You can catch up on our Instagram Lives here, and watch these amazing cocktails being made. Or check out the recipes here and get creating!


Raspberry and Lime Cocktail by Carol

50ml Raspberry Pink Gin

10ml Amaretto

10ml Raspberry and Lime Syrup


Shake all the ingredients with plenty of ice and pour into a chilled Nick and Nora glass. Garnish with a Raspberry and Lime Twist!


And here's how to make the perfect syrup. Trust me, it is worth the effort and you won't be disappointed. This is far superior to any shop-bought syrup you'll find.


Raspberry and Lime Syrup

100ml water

100g sugar

12 raspberries

10ml lime juice and some lime zest


Bring the water and sugar to a gentle simmer in a pan with the raspberries. Turn off the heat when the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool, then add the lime juice and zest. Leave to macerate for a while, then strain and store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.


Use these beautiful homemade syrups to drizzle over desserts, ice cream and cakes. If there's any left from your cocktail making, that is!

25ml Limoncello

Ginger beer top

Handful of raspberries

Muddle fresh raspberries in the bottom of a shaker with the gin and limoncello. Shake over ice and fine strain into an ice filled glass. Top with ginger beer and garnish with more fresh raspberries.
