When you’re a few drinks in on a lingering summer Saturday with a cool evening breeze coming off the water, you start to feel like you’re an awesome, cutting-edge millennial Martha Stewart who can invent new things. That’s what I thought I had achieved by plundering the mint from the kitchen garden of my boyfriend’s family summer cottage and adding it to a freshly made gimlet. And while it’s delicious, turns out it has indeed been done before. It was just the alcohol talking. But what we did manage to invent was an awesome name for it… drumroll please:
Please meet the “Mojimlet“. It’s your classic gimlet (some say gin, I say vodka… po-tay-to, po-tah-to. It’s all enjoyable in the end), Rose’s Lime Juice and muddled mint. Bottoms up to summer!
