If you’re looking for the perfect refreshment on a warm day, look no further than pink gin and Prosecco cocktails.
A slight variation on gin and Prosecco, this blush variety builds on the popularity of pink gin to create a tantalising tipple that’s ideal for summer days and special occasions alike.The secret to their success is they’re highly Instagrammable. Who doesn’t want to show off these beauties?
Gordon’s – Pink Gin Spritz
It’s hard to think of another brand who have done more to bring pink gin and Prosecco to the spotlight. The (now classic) Gordon’s Pink Gin Spritz is as follows:
Fill a large glass with ice, add 50ml of Gordon’s Pink gin and 50ml of lemonade then top up with 25ml of Prosecco and garnish with strawberries.

Malfy Rosa Gin – Pink Gin Fizz
The new Malfy Rosa is simply fabulous. Turn it into a fabulous Prosecco cocktail by pouring one part gin into a flute glass, then top up with two measures of chilled Prosecco and garnish with a twist of pink grapefruit peel.

Tanqueray – Pink Grapefruit & Prosecco
Speaking of pink grapefruit, we know that gin and grapefruit is a winning combination but have you tried it with Prosecco? According to The Salty Dog Hotel (and much of Twitter actually), simply add pink grapefruit and Prosecco to your Tanqueray.
