How do you make Pink Grapefruit Gin | National Dish Recipe

Look at the colour when making grapefruit gin
Love this, the blue of the juniper berries that make the gin shows up against the pink grapefruit – amazing.

I’ve been dying to make Pink Grapefruit Gin, I think the colour would be attractive and relate completely to the flavour – Pink Grapefruit is a real treat just as grapefruit.

As with all our Gin recipes, you need to sterilise everything thoroughly, I mean it – don’t piss about here, you could be wasting good Gin.

This is easy to prep and nurture.
