4 shots out of 5
Yes you saw that right! I gave a high rating to a cocktail that has Gin in it! I know, I know......I'm starting to get well rounded in the world of alcohol these days. Gone are the days where vodka and rum were the only two liquors in my cabinet and here are the days where there are too many liquors, liqueurs and mixes in my cabinet....you can check them all out here, everything but my purees, Voyant Chai and lime juice which are in the fridge.
I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5. Yes it has gin in it, and yes I gave it a 4. Sip one tasted like lime juice. Sip two I tasted more of the raspberry puree and sip three is where the gin finally made it's appearance. The rest of the sips the ingredients seemed to all be heard.....or tasted. These three flavors go pretty well together and this cocktail is a nice looking color too! If you enjoy a gin cocktail, you may want to give this one a try.
Here is the recipe for a Raspberry Gimlet:
- 2 oz gin
- 1 oz raspberry puree
- 1 oz lime juice
In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients above. Shake them up real good and strain your cocktail into a chilled martini glass.
Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to me enjoying another cocktail that contains gin. Who'd have thunk it? Not me!
