Thirsty Thursday: Gin Gimlet

Bookmark and Share

So it is time for our Thirsty Thursday and this week we are celebrating one of movies all time greatest actors, W. C. Fields. His 130th birthday is Friday, January 29th. Now while watching most of his classic movies you will notice Fields often with a libation in his hands. Perhaps this is why his trademark nose was always so rosey. Now in his movies, he is often drinking whiskey but Fields is often celebrated with Gin due to his famous quote, "I exercise strong self control. I never drink anything stronger than gin before breakfast." So in honor of our Classic movie Drunkard, we celebrate with a classic drink, the Gin Gimlet.

2 oz gin
1 3/4 oz Rose's lime juice or other lime cordial

Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes. Stir well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. I also like to wipe the rim with a lime wedge, gently squeeze it over the drink and drop it in. You can also serve this on the rocks if you prefer a cooler and then more diluted version.

This is one cocktail that you can find in almost any bar or restaurant. So, Try it out and let us know what you think!! Have a different variation that you prefer, let us know by leaving a comment.
