The perfect Easter Gin cocktail

Easy cocktail recipes to try with your colour changing Pink Gin

Spring has officially sprung and a well deserved boozy Easter weekend is just round the corner!

So this week were bringing you some delicious Gin cocktail recipes to celebrate and make your weekend extra sweet, I mean whats a better duo than catsuits and cocktails?

We've teamed up with Pink Marmalade Gin who make the most amazing, colour changing, all natural Gin for party people to talk you through a few winning cocktail combinations.

If you're not a drinker, just substitute your gin for a non-alcoholic version such as the Seedlip Grove 42 for a delish mocktail!

When life gives you lemons...make a Gin & Tonic!

Meet the colour changing Gin makers: Pink Marmalade Gin

In true Burnt Soul style, the Gin we'll be using for these cocktail recipe's is colour changing from a cool icy blue through lavender and onto a beautiful pink, just by adding tonic water.

Pink Marmalade Gin is an independent brand that started up in the first lockdown and we are truly obsessed.

They've worked with fellow Burnt Soul lover Sophie Ellis-Bexter to create a beautiful limited edition Gin bottle and pride themselves on their super high quality, amazing taste and small batch runs...so just like us really!
