Welcome In The Spring And Rediscover The Gimlet

As the days grow longer and the air fills with the promise of spring, it's the perfect time to awaken your senses with a classic cocktail that's stood the test of time—the Gimlet. This delightful libation, thought to be the first "sour" cocktail, combines the crispness of spirits, the tanginess of lime juice, and the subtle sweetness of agave syrup for a refreshing sip that heralds the arrival of warmer days. While gimlets made with vodka have their admirers, gin is the classic liquor to use, and the version we like best.

GIMLET INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz Gin
  • 3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz Agave Syrup
  • Lime wheel, for garnish

HOW TO MAKE A GIMLET

  1. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine gin, fresh lime juice, and agave syrup.
  2. Shake well until chilled, about 15-20 seconds.
  3. Strain into a chilled coupe glass or over ice in a rocks glass.
  4. Garnish with a lime wheel for a vibrant touch.

Elevate your Gimlet experience by muddling a few fresh basil leaves in the shaker before adding the other ingredients. The herbaceous notes of basil add an aromatic dimension that will make you think spring is in the air.

GIMLET RIFF

As stated above, the Vodka Gimlet is a popular variation. Simpler in its flavors and less botanical, the Vodka Gimlet brings a new dimension to the classic cocktail, offering a refreshing and crisp alternative that's perfect for any occasion.
