Friday’s Vintage Cocktail: Gimlet

Good afternoon lovelies!

Thankfully Friday is here again, and the weekend is upon us. Each Friday I’m featuring a fabulous vintage cocktail to celebrate the end of the working week. I think my favourite part of this blog is drinking the tasty drink whilst writing!

The Gimlet

As always please remember if I have any underaged readers, the legal drinking age within Australia is 18, so make a mocktail version if so! Below I have listed one of my favourite songs by Glenn Miller & His Orchestra to get us in the mood for some glamorous cocktail making!

For this week’s cocktail I’ve chosen the Gimlet, a simple cocktail that dates back to 1852, but really gain popularity in the 1940’s/50’s. I love cocktails which don’t have too many ingredients and are simple to make as for dinner parties they’re the easier to prepare.

Simply stir the ingredient together, and serve. I’ve chosen to also add about 4 sprigs of mint for a fresh but flavour. I’ve serve this in a simple martini glass for a classic look. The Gimlet is a delicious zingy cocktail perfect for these warmer summer nights. Whether having a night in with your sweetheart, of having friends over its simplicity suits any occasions!
