Nectar of the Gods: The perfect Vodka Gimlet…

People. Today I caught a glimpse of the End of Days. It looked an awful lot like DENIM STIRRUP PANTS BEING SOLD AT THE GAP.

What could I do but make myself a gimlet and wonder at the mysterious ways of the world? It’s certainly not what I imagined the apocalypse would look like, but apocalypse it must be.

So the hatches my friends? They are battened down. Join me, won’t you? If we’re lucky I’ll see you on the flip side.

The most perfect Vodka Gimlet (serves 1)

1.5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice (2 limes)

1.5 oz simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, heated until sugar dissolves, and cooled)

3 oz vodka

Mix lime juice, simple syrup and vodka in a cocktail shaker (add ice if you will be serving your gimlet up.) Shake vigorously. Serve over ice. (Or up in a chilled glass.)

sweet nectar of the gods.
