Yes, I know…we’ve been a little MIA recently. Life has been really busy. Between travelling for the holidays, work, and still getting settled into our house, we haven’t been keeping up our usual posting schedule! This weekend we wanted to do something fun and very simple to get back into the swing of things…so what better than a cocktail? The classic Gimlet fit the bill in that it only has three ingredients…gin, lime juice and simple syrup. I love tart cocktails so this drink was exactly my, er, cup of tea, so to speak. It may even rank up there with Nathan’s margarita and whiskey sour which is saying something! If you’re looking for a simple and refreshing cocktail definitely try this one…it’s destined to become part of our usual rotation!

Ingredients:

3 ounces gin
1.5 ounces lime juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup

Directions:

1. Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker with ice and shake until cold.
2. Pour over rocks and enjoy!

As I write this, I’m looking out of the window at the dreary start to October and feeling extremely thankful that we have no plans tonight. Crazy weeks at work have coincided with the beginning of Autumn and this special cocktail is a response to them both. It incorporates the warm, festive flavors of cinnamonContinue Reading
