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!
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.
