Our "fixed" AC is broken again. We had bad thunder storms this morning followed by more this afternoon. And to top it all off in the middle of the storm we learned that their was a tornado warning. So I sure you would not be surprised to learn that I am fixing up a cocktail for Hubby and myself this evening.
I am going to go with a yummy classic in my book - the gimlet. Cold gin and lime juice is simply perfect on a hot and muggy summer night in my book!
4 oz gin
2 oz simple syrup
2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add a bunch a ice and shake until cold. Strain into two chilled martini glasses. Enjoy! (Hubby's note- These are outstanding, I HIGHLY recommend you try them. Plus you will be fighting scurvy at the same time so it's a win-win!)
