Pink Gin
1 1/2 ounces gin
3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Stir with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass.
Another way to make this is to swirl a splash of bitters in a cocktail glass. Shake, or flick, the bitters out and pour the gin into the glass. You can also add water to taste or serve on the rocks.

Nothing could be simpler, gin and bitters. It may not be a drink I'd recommend to somebody just getting interested in cocktails, but once you've grown accustomed to the normal lineup, it's a great drink to try. The amount of bitters can easily be adjusted either up or down depending on your tastes.
