I’m ashamed to admit, but this may be my first gimlet on Liquid Culture. Where did the time go? How can I neglect such a heinous crime? Well I’m here to rectify this neglect and bring you the goods with this recipe! Inspired by my cedar infusion obsession this week, we have a refreshing and tasty Broker’s Cedar Gimlet.
I have a serious love and appreciation for Broker’s Gin and it all started because I got to meet the owner himself. You know that top hat that’s placed on the Brokers Gin bottle, well that man exists, and he wears it proudly representing his brand all over the world. A delightful chat about gins with him only made me love this London Dry Gin even more. Broker’s Gin isn’t that rare, expensive bottle of gin you splurg on. It’s the bottle you go to when times are tough and the bottle you lean on to give you just the right balance of herbs and botanicals! I’m not saying this because I have to, I’m saying this because I truly believe this is one of the best valued London Dry Gin in the market.
Now I know why a gimlet has never been featured on Liquid Culture and that’s because my natural instinct when I see Lime Cordial is to run away. Again, I’m talking about the neon green syrup that you’ll find in most grocery stores, as I’ve never had the luxury of the homemade creations. I’ll get on it one day, but for today’s recipe, I’m simply combining fresh lime and the cedar syrup. Maybe my Gimlet enthusiasts are judging me hard for not shaking things up with the cordial, but I can guarantee they won’t fuss too much after having one of these, especially since it’s so EASY to throw together!
