Gimlet

The Gimlet is a classic drink from the 30’s that has been making a comeback in the past few years.  It’s made with fresh lime juice, gin and a hint of sweetness.  Warm weather is the perfect time to pour a couple of these refreshingly simple cocktails


Julie and Julia is one of my all time favorite movies.  Go figure, a girl with a food blog who loves Julia Child.  Julie can been seen in many instances drinking a Gimlet while she prepares dinner.  Seems like a good idea to me!  Let’s get mixing!

You’ll need gin, fresh limes, superfine sugar and lots of crushed ice

For each cocktail, measure out 2 ounces of gin, one ounce of fresh lime juice and 1-2 teaspoons of superfine sugar, depending upon your preference

Some of us are sweeter than others 😉

Add to a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice & shake it until it’s so cold you can’t bear it

Pour into a glass over crushed ice and garnish with a wheel of fresh lime. Repeat for cocktail number two

Find your favorite happy hour buddy and enjoy!
