According to legend, the drink was originally created when sailors with the Royal Navy demanded something to mix with their doctor-mandated bitters. This drink is only accurate if true Plymouth Gin is used. Plymouth Gin is a sweet gin that can only be distilled in Plymouth, on the coast of England. For an even more potent Pink Gin, use the Plymouth Navy Strength Gin, which boasts 57% alcohol.
Variations of this drink involve increasing or decreasing the amount of bitters used. For example: add the bitters, swirl it around the cup, and pour it out again.
Actor Alec Guinness orders a pink gin in the film "Raise the Titanic" where he instructs the bartender: "and don't skimp on the Angostura."
