Vodka Gimlet

lime garnishing not needed...but it sure is pretty!

As many of you know, the Vodka Gimlet is my favorite drink. My friend Clint introduced me to this ambrosia like concoction during one of my visits to Lubbock. We were at Café J’s and he ordered this drink for me by saying “She would like a vodka gimlet served up please”. Served up means that the drink is placed in a large martini glass thus doubling the contents. If you already knew that, then good for you. I had no idea what it meant at the time.
A gimlet is simply vodka cut with a little lime juice. Again, I did not know this at the time. Therefore, I downed three of them because they are delicious!!!
Rachel, I think you might have been there with me….I am not sure though because I inevitably became quite intoxicated.
Any-hoo-da-li-do-da-li, this is how you make a yummy yummy gimlet:
2 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
Combine in a shaker with ice.
Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Serve with a lime squeeze.
Now, make one for yourself and invite me over when you do.

I think that by the time I was introduced to the gimlet at Cafe J's, you were already addicted. But I am SO looking forward to toasting MANY a gimlet by the pool this summer! CAN'T WAIT! =)R

oh man, I am going to make a thermos full of these babies! We can sit pool side and sip on our yummy gimlets. All we need now is a pool boy (only to bring us refills....I am married)
