Green Tea Gimlet Cocktail
June 6, 2014
Happy Friday everyone! What do you have planned for the weekend? I’m so excited ~ we have the Telluride Balloon Fest going on here! Its a true treat of color, festivities and smiles. To celebrate bluebird days & hot air balloons (to celebrate anything) I have this Green Tea Gimlet Cocktail recipe from the wonderful Savory Cocktails book by Greg Henry (Sippity Sup blog.) Let’s sip!
Greg is an awesome blogger pal and I’m loving his cocktail cookbook.
Savory cocktails are less common then their sweeter siblings, but just as tasty & fun!
In the book there are sour (Green Tea Gimlet), spicy (The Spice Trail), herbal (Triple C Collins), umami (Sungold Zinger), bitter (Barrel Aged Berolini), smoky (The Long Goodbye), rich (Cool Revival) & strong (Hair Raising Tonic) cocktails in this book.
I chose the Green Tea Gimlet (page. 23) to share with you because A. It’s delicious. B. You can easily sweeten up with some more of Greg’s citrus syrup recipe if you desire.
Gin isn’t typically my first choice in liquor but I’m really enjoying it this time of year. I love it’s light, brisk flavor & it’s really fun to mix into fruity (& savory) cocktails.
Enjoy your weekend! We will be watching the balloons float by….
