The Story Behind The Winter Gimlet
Just because temperatures are dropping doesn’t mean you have to abandon citrusy cocktails like the Gimlet. For this winterized take, I added a bit of smokiness by charring the limes before squeezing them. This is easy to do at home with a torch, and it adds a different flavor profile that might make you think of sipping cocktails by the fireplace.
You can also swap out the lime for lemon or your favorite winter citrus, like grapefruit or blood orange.
