I forgot how much I loved Plums, especially when its vibrancy comes through in a cocktail. This riff on a Gimlet does JUST that with a homemade Plum Cordial and using Collective Art’s Plum & Blackthorn Gin. See why The Collective Plumlet is going to quickly become your favourite cocktail.
There’s a big reason why I never whipped up a ton of Gimlets on Liquid Culture. That’s because I would have to make Lime Cordial myself and I was never in the mood to zest. There is a BIG difference between the generic neon green cordial you pick up from the Grocery Store, to the stuff you make at home. But I finally got around to whipping up my own cordial for this cocktail, and it’s VERY easy to throw together. If you would like the recipe, make sure to follow this link here for details.
Once your cordial is done, this is really easy to put together. You just need the gin and a touch more citrus. Shake to your hearts content and strain. THAT’S IT! I SWEAR! So if you want to know what you’ve been missing, check out the recipe below.
