Gimlet Cocktail Recipe

Gimlet Cocktail

Need something tart? Feeling like you’re night could use some gin? Then you’re in just the right mood to enjoy a good old-fashioned Gimlet.

Similar to a Daiquiri, a Gimlet is a simple and light drink that can be enjoyed for almost any occasion whether it be a night out with friends, a mid-day lunch, or the wedding of your girlfriend’s cousin who you met once a long time ago for 5 brief and awkward minutes.

When ordering make sure you specify that you want a Gin Gimlet since most bartender’s automatically assume customer’s ordering a Gimlet will want the Vodka variety.
