Gimlet 2nd Photo


I first enjoyed this delightful cocktail at our local Ocean Prime restaurant in Tampa. I love Bombay Sapphire gin so I could not resist the thought of my favorite gin with refreshing cucumber on a hot summer evening. They go perfectly together! Ocean Prime muddle their cucumber but I found the process too messy. By blending the ingredients you get more of the cucumber flavor in the cocktail. It’s also quicker and less messy to make this way.
