A unique tiki style cocktail. First created in the 1970s in Kuala Lumpur at the Aviary bar in Kuala Lumpur, this tropical concoction combines a delicious mix of dark rum, Campari and fruit juices.
Created to help prevent scurvy on English Naval ships as officers weren’t taking their rations of lime for it’s vitamin C. A lot of recipes call for Rose’s Lime Cordial but below is the recipe for a fresh Gimlet made using sweetened fresh lime juice.
The recipe only calls for small measures of orgeat and grenadine enables the botanicals of the vermouth to shine through. Luscious egg white foam, aromas of nutmug and subtle flavours.
Feeling lazy? Put that shaker away, measure your ingredients and stir. A simple, classic gin cocktail that has stood the test of time. Use an Old Tom gin if you have one available otherwise a London Dry style is a good substitute.
