Fire Cider Recipes

It's A Medicinal Tonic. It's A Cocktail Mixer. It's Both…and More!

The Gimlet, Fire Cider Style

Did you know that Gin was originally considered a cure-all?  Well now it is passing the torch to Fire Cider.  Pun definitely intended.  We love our friend Ben McHenry’s take on this classic cocktail.  During the summer time, any day can feel like a Sunday, have a sip on one of these the next time you need to bring the weekend to you!

The more Fire Cider you add, the more colorful (spicy, flavorful) your drink will be!

A more colorful, flavorful gimlet.

  • 1 1/2 shot gin
  • 1/2 shot fire cider
  • big splash tonic
  • juice of half a lime
  • 1 tsp sugar
Add everything to a pint glass and shake well to mix, strain over ice into a rocks glass with fresh ice.
Alternatively, add a some fresh Thai basil or tarragon, before you shake things up.  Sub the tonic for soda water if adding herbs.
And thanks for the recipe Ben, and by thanks we mean, where should we mail your Fire Cider T-shirt to?!
