Celebuzz Cocktail Hour: The Classic Gin Gimlet by Drizly
It is always good to embrace a classic.
“Some believe the Gimlet cocktail was named after a British Royal Navy doctor that may have served this to his crew in order to ward off scurvy. The lime juice and gin combination make a classically refreshing cocktail served up or down over ice, it always delights.” — Trisha Antonsen, chief cocktail at Drizly.com.
Whichever gin you choose to make your Gimlet is up to you, but please do splurge a little. The Classic Gin Gimlet is one of Drizly’s Zodiac cocktails which are based on the different sign’s personality traits. Say hello to the Taurus cocktail:
The Classic Gin Gimlet
1/2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1 cut fresh lime wheel
In a shaker filled with ice combine gin, lime juice, and simple syrup; shake until cold. Pour into a martini glass or rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with a fresh wheel of lime.
