Rose Gimlet

Rose Gimlet

The gimlet is traditionally a cocktail made with gin and lime juice. According to @wikipedia ‘A description in the 1953 Raymond Chandler novel The Long Goodbye stated that “a real gimlet is half gin and half Rose’s lime juice cordial and nothing else.” However, modern tastes are less sweet, and generally provide for at least two parts gin to one part of the lime and other non-alcoholic elements’

So my ‘non-alcoholic element’ is Rose Cordial. I used:
2.5oz/75ml Gin
1/2oz/15ml Lime Juice
1/2oz/15ml @elguapobitters Rose Cordial

Add all ingredients to your cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until combined

Double strain into divine vintage glassware serve on a sliver platter with dried rose petals

Tasting Tip: If you like a little more citrus, bump it up to 1oz/30ml. This is delicious too 😉

Salud! Sip deliciously and responsibly x
