Gimlet

This is a classic drink from the 30’s that has been making a comeback in the past few years.  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) and Julie can been seen in many instances drinking a Gimlet while she prepares dinner

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 repeat for cocktail number two

Find your favorite happy hour buddy and enjoy!

Cheers!
