I love this drink for it’s classy simplicity.  If your a Mad Men fan like I am then you’ll understand how timeless this cocktail is.  Gimlet, if you’re wondering, is what they use to call cocktails back then and I think I’d like to bring that term back.  Everything comes around again in time and I love the good old days of the simple life with simple joys and this drink does that for me.

So if your looking for something new to try and your not sure if you’re a gin fan then I highly suggest starting with this gimlet.  Ya never know you might just end up being a super fan like me.

To make The Betty Draper Gimlet:

    • 2 oz of Gin
    • 1 oz of Fresh Lime Juice
    • 1 oz of Simple Syrup
    • Ice
    • Slices of Lime

Make simple syrup in advanced with equal parts water and sugar into a small pot. I usually do 1 cup of each and store any extra in the fridge.  Cook water and sugar on the stove just until the sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and let completely cool.

Once simple syrup is cooled we can start making our gimlet.

Combine the gin, lime juice, ice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker.  Shake well and strain into glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Feel free to double the ingredients to make 2 drinks per shaker.

    Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!

    Thanks designed for sharing such a fastidious opinion, post

    Have you ever considered about including a
    little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    But think of if you added some great graphics or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Wonderful blog!

    Currently it looks like Drupal is the top blogging platform out there right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    look at the spelling on quite a few of your
    posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very
    troublesome to inform the reality then again I will definitely come back again.
