Raspberry Gimlet

Raspberry Gimlet

August 14, 2020

I love a good Gimlet! A super simple classic cocktail that’s aged very well. I have found since starting this Shrubbie Series blog that many of the recognizable common cocktails are just that, simple. They have few ingredients, take little time to prepare, and are truly delicious. 

As with all cocktails the Gimlet has evolved over time. Traditionally gin and sweetened lime juice. Nowadays it’s usually gin, simple syrup, and lime juice(whoa! What a complex evolution!), but it’s very easy to add fruits of choice(strawberry, peach, or blueberry), herbs(the Basil Gimlet), or even shrubs. Yes, I went there. This week we have for you the fantastic Raspberry Gimlet, using our Raspberry Coriander Shrub.
