Three rhubarb cocktails

If you're a fan of a floral aperitif or fruity gin, we think you'll love this trio of homemade pink cocktail recipes. From a seriously cerise shaded classic negroni to a blushing rose sgroppino, these three simple cocktails are sure to leave you tickled pink...

  1. Pink negroni

    Invented in 1919 by bartender Forsco Scarselli for Count Camillo Negroni, you can give this classic cocktail a contemporary update with this pink negroni recipe. The punchy four-ingredient pour uses pink gin to add a fun, flirty touch, while dashes of Campari, Aperol and sweet white vermouth over ice add zesty bitterness. Stir vigorously and finish with a slice of orange for the perfect pre-dinner Valentine’s tipple.

  2. Red grapefruit sgroppino

    A Sgroppino offers a grown-up take on an ice cream float – with a kick of boozy flavours. For this elegant pale pink variation, you’ll need to make some red grapefruit sorbet in advance. When ready to serve, divide a scoop of the red grapefruit sorbet between two coupe glasses, add 1 tsp of vodka and top up with Tesco Finest Prosecco rosé. Garnish with grapefruit peel.

  3. Rhubarb sour

    Looking to shake up a showstopper? Step in this fun and fruity rhubarb sour recipe. Egg whites provide a thick, pale pink foam for this blushed gin drink, while  an easy homemade rhubarb syrup adds sweetness to balance out the sour lemon and gin. Finish with a delicate curl of rhubarb by running a peeler along the length of the stem.
