Fresh Pink Gimlet for Your Winter Wedding Cocktails

This winter, pass a perfectly pink gin Gimlet at your holiday cocktail parties! For a cocktail that has historical roots on the open seas (where sailors drank gin to prevent scurvy! Yikes!), the Gimlet has gained a longstanding reputation as a refreshing and effortless cocktail. Add a bit of fresh pink grapefruit juice and, voilá, the Pink Gimlet, a new classic! 

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 ounces High-Quality Gin

3/4 ounce Simple Syrup

1 Lime

1/2 Pink Grapefruit

Crushed Ice 

Fresh Thyme and Lime Slice (for garnish)

 

Mixing Instructions: 

In a cocktail shaker, start with the citrus base by squeezing the juice of one lime and 1/2 of a pink grapefruit over ample crushed ice. Add simple syrup and your favorite gin, then shake until combined. Pour and serve, garnishing with a slice of lime and a sprig of fresh thyme.
