Thirsty Thursday: Gimlet


GimletWhat shall we do with the drunken sailor? Note that your cordial can be shop-bought or homemade and it’s fun to mix it up with the seasons.

You’ll need:
2 oz Kimerud Hillside Gin
1 oz  lime cordial

This ratio of two parts gin to one part cordial dances in the glass. Stir down, pour into a glamorous coupe and garnish how you please.

Kimerud Gin comes to Monmouth County NJ!

After a successful dinner at Blu Grotto Ristorante in Oceanport, we’ve had requests to buy this delicious Norwegian Gin.
