A classic gimlet gets an upgrade with a refreshing hint of grapefruit in this delicious summer cocktail.
We’ve taken the traditional gimlet flavors of gin, lime and simple syrup and infused one of our favorite summer ingredients: Grapefruit—for an added layer of sweetness and tang. If you have simple syrup lying around, feel free to use it, but we like the taste and convenience of agave syrup. Serve over ice or in a coupe glass if you’re feeling extra fancy.
3 ounces gin
1 1/2 ounces lime juice
3/4 ounce agave
1 1/2 ounce grapefruit juice
- Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake until the outside of the shaker is frosty enough to run your finger through.
- Divide the mixture into two glasses filled with ice. Garnish with a thin slice of grapefruit wedged into the side of the glass.
