We kept the ingredients really simple for our version, with just the vodka, triple sec and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Some recipes include simple syrup infused with lemon juice, or a sour mix, but we wanted our super fresh.

For our Gimlet we grabbed Grandma B’s 80-year-old etched Coupe glasses from the cabinet, squeezed some fresh lime juice and made our own simple syrup. We chose not to double strain the Gimlet from the cocktail shaker, as we are huge fans of limes.
