How to Make A Pink G&T – And Where to Enjoy It!

Surely one of life’s simple pleasures is the quiet enjoyment of a sunset, with cocktail in hand, with a loved one by your side.
With such spectacular sunsets every day at Tintswalo Atlantic; we have perfected the art of the sundowner. This month is Women’s Month, so we decided to set up a selection of pink cocktails on offer on the deck.
One of the most popular drinks was the good old African special – the G&T – but we gave it a special female flair and turned it into a spectacular PINK G&T.
With the warm glow of the sun sinking below the Atlantic Ocean, guests were buzzing as the pink drinks came out on trays and they whiled away the cool winter evening with warm hearts and minds.

For your own Pink fun, here are a few recipes to light up your own sundowners.
