The Barrel Aged Gin Gimlet is our twist on the classic Gimlet, featuring Strathcona Spirits' Barrel Aged Gin, fresh lime juice, and a touch of sweet raspberry syrup.
0.5 oz fresh lime juice
0.5 oz raspberry simple syrup (recipe at the end)
To make your own Barrel Aged Gin Gimlet, start by filling a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 oz of Barrel Aged Gin, 0.5 oz of fresh lime juice, and 0.5 oz of raspberry simple syrup to the shaker.
Shake the ingredients vigorously until the mixture is well chilled and strain it into a chilled glass.
Garnish with a slice of lime or a fresh raspberry for an extra pop of color and flavor.
Taste the rich and complex flavors of Strathcona Spirits' Barrel Aged Gin, which is aged in Virgin oak barrels to impart a deep, woody character to the spirit. The bright tang of lime juice and the sweet raspberry syrup are the perfect complement to the gin's complex flavors, creating a balanced and refreshing cocktail that's perfect for any occasion. Cheers!
