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!

The Gimlet Cocktail:

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!

We’re not those people that get on the pumpkin train in early September.Continue Reading

If you’ve been following Rampant Cuisine for any length of time you know that our top three mixed drinks are the margarita, the mojito, and the whisky sour (our homemade versions..I can’t speak for the too sweet versions that are often served in restaurants/bars!) I would like to now announce that the caipirinha will beContinue Reading

It’s been awhile since we posted a cocktail! This is another creation with a misleading name…the drink is so named only because of the perception of vodka as a Russian product. In reality, the drink was invented in the US in the 1940’s when a spirits distributor and a ginger beer producer got together andContinue Reading
