Gimme that Gimlet!


Looks like this whiskey drinker is going sour...I'm crazy about the limes. Last night was my first night at work at the bar--looks like my moonlighting as a cocktail waitress is going to be a nice adventure for my tastebuds. Not only did I not spill any drinks on anyone, but I got to taste a few of my own (thanks to the AAAS crew that popped in on my first night!). And how about all of our drinks are named after famous people...or more like famous men---yes, the drink menu is actually called the boys of summer, so ladies, drink up! Last night I had a taste of Ziggy Marley, but tonight, I'm all about Sean Penn. But I think my absolute favorite was the gimlet. Here's a recipe for a purple one. Housewives, make your something special this afternoon. Cheers to one and all.

Violet Gimlet
Ingredients:3 oz. gin or rum
1/2 oz. blue curacao
Splash of Rose’s® Lime Juice
1/4 oz. Rose’s® Grenadine
Lime wedge 1 ea. (garnish)

And after you make yourself that gimlet, think about if you could name a drink after a poet, what would be in it. For example, I'd love to go to the bar and say, I'll have a Whitman, straight up, or a Dickinson on the rocks...so poets and housewives/husbands, open up a book and mix yourself something smooth to chase down those poems and post your concoctions on the blog and I'll see if I can get them to do a back to school menu, especially for me!
