Enjoy a classic cocktail with a modern twist - the Gimlet. The gimlet is a simple but sophisticated drink that requires just a few ingredients. Whether it's a dinner party or just a cozy evening after work, this drink always fits the bill.

What is a gimlet?

The gimlet is a classic cocktail made from gin and lime juice, which is usually sweetened with sugar syrup. The drink was first mentioned in 1930 in the book "The Savoy Cocktail Book" and was very popular during the Prohibition era as it was considered "healthier" compared to other spirits.

The Gimlet can also be mixed with vodka and is sometimes garnished with a lime wedge to bring out the fresh citrus flavor even more.

Let's start mixing!

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
