classiccocktails

It’s Timeless Tuesday, a day where we love to share our classic cocktail recipes that have truly stood the test of time. These delicious drinks have lasted decades – some that were created in the 19th century and are still being mixed up all over the world. Today, we are shaking up a true classic cocktail, the Gimlet or in this case – the Pimmlet.

Sometimes made with vodka, the Gimlet has a made a transformation from a scurvy British naval drink to a sexy classic cocktail. Great for summer garden parties or late night rendezvous.

 

 

 

The Pimmlet:
1 ounce of Pimm’s No. 1
1 ounce of Cascade Street Distillery Gin
1 ounce of fresh squeezed lime juice
Simple syrup
Cucumber & mint for garnish

Preparation:
Muddle the cucumber, mint leaves and dash of sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake well for one minute. Pour into chilled martini glass and remind yourself that it’s 5 o’clock somewhere in the world!

Pimm’s Trivia:
The Brits love their Pimm’s. Pimm’s No. 1 Cup was first produced in 1823 by an Oyster Bar owner named James Pimm. This classic gin infused liqueur is a bar or cocktail lounge standard and is the sponsor brand of English polo matches, the Henley Royal Regatta and Wimbledon.
