Pink Gin
1 1/2 ounces gin
3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Stir with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass.

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.
