D: Home again! This week I was feeling like drinking some Gin, and someone on Reddit was talking about Lime Gimlet, so I was on board with trying that. The float caught Steph’s eye, so that was her choice. Yaaay Gin! [S: Yay ice cream!]
HIS DRINK: [Classic Gimlet]
- 4oz Tanqueray Gin
- 1/2 lime (juiced)
- 1 wedge lime
- Cocktail glass
Add the gin to a cocktail shaker filled with ice, along with the juice from 1/2 lime. Shake until well mixed.
Strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish with lime wheel and drink.
- 1 part spiced rum
- 2 parts cola
- 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
- Pint glass
Pour the spiced rum and cola into a pint glass.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, serve with a long spoon.
Classic Gimlet: Delicious. Basically just gin with some lime added to it >.> But that’s pretty much the selling point, very good. It’s a close tossup between Manhattan and Gimlet; I’m not sure which I like better so far, both are so good.. but, I would definitely make it again. Great drink. Very simple, and tasty.
Vanilla Float: S: Delicious. This was a classic float, for adults. Not sure it was wise to down pretty much 90% of it before bedtime, but c’est la vie. Love floats? Love rum? This drink is the one for you. Seriously, go float yourself.
