This drink takes the refreshing classic cocktail, the Gimlet, and adds fresh raspberries to bring a hint of fruity sweetness that makes it taste a bit like a raspberry limeade. The gimlet was popular in the warm colonies of the British Empire as a way to try prevent scurvy, and traditionally consisted of gin and sweetened lime juice (hence the traditional “Limey” nickname for Brits).  The sweetened lime juice was used in lieu of the fresh lime juice and sugar syrup as fresh limes were hard to come by in the wide flung corners of the empire.  Using fresh lime juice brings a brighter tart note to this version of the Gimlet and makes for a very refreshing drink for a warm summer day.

    1. LOL, we were a big time beer family before we discovered the craft cocktail world. The raspberries were really good in this, but I bet blueberries or blackberries would have been great too.
