Summer Cocktail

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!

Classic Gimlet

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!)


  1. Nothing more refreshing in the summertime than the gimlet! Hope your ac is fixed soon!!

  2. Nothing is worse than trying sleep in the hot summer heat with no ac. Hope it's fixed soon! When will you announce the give-a-way winner?

    1. Could you email me since you are the winner? (lobsterpeach at gmail dot com) Sorry but Google+ must not have sent the message from Wednesday!
