The name comes from the small amount of Angostura bitters that gives the gin its pink color. This cocktail originated as an aperitif for British naval officers in the old days. It has a sharp and deep taste with a strong bitter flavor of bitters. The same ingredients can be used in a build to make a "Gin and Bitters". If you substitute orange bitters for bitters, you get "Yellow Gin".
