How to make a Sea Pink Cocktail
Sea Pink is the cocktail recommended by Stuart from Deerness distillery for his Sea Glass gin, it's is a riff on the classic Sea Breeze Cocktail. Sea Pink grows wild in coastal areas and this cocktail evokes the cliffs of Orkney. Lovely and fresh!
The original Sea Breeze (now an official cocktail of the International Bartenders' Assosciation) was originally created in the 1920s. Back then it had a very different recipe with gin, apricot brandy, grenadine, and lemon juice. Then in the 1950s Ocean Spray, which grew out of the US Cranberry Growers' Association, hit on using the Sea Breeze to market their cranberry juice and the "Cape Codder" cocktail was born. Over time this morphed into the Greyhound, Bay Breeze, Salty Dog and Sea Breeze cocktails. Since the 60s, the Breeze cocktails have consistently been in the top ten most popular cocktails list.
