Nautical Gin Contest - the Nauti-Gimlet Cocktail

The Nauti-Gimlet Cocktail

This February, Nautical Gin is hosting a cocktail contest featuring variations of the classic Gimlet.

The folks at Nautical Gin challenged some New England influencers to personalize their own Gimlet recipe whether it be with additional ingredients or garnish. (UPDATE: WE WON THE CONTEST!)

The traditional Gimlet is typically made with a 2 - 1 ratio of  gin to lime juice --- and rather than stomp all over tradition, we thought we'd pay homage to the citrus aspects and add the sweetness of lemon.

Here's our variation of the Gin Gimlet - with a Nauti-little twist on it!

It's a bit more tart and a bit more sweet than an ordinary Gin Gimlet. Here on the Connecticut shoreline we like our cocktails big and bold - and this one does not disappoint. Whip it up in a cocktail shaker and serve it in a big ole Mason Jar.

Shake ... sip ... and enjoy!

The Nauti-Gimlet Cocktail

In an iced cocktail shaker combine the following:
3 oz. Nautical Gin
1 oz. Rose's Lime Juice*
1 oz. Ripe Lemon Sour Mix*

Shake well.
Serve over ice in a Mason Jar.
Garnish with a sprig of Rosemary, Assorted Berries and a Lemon or Lime Wedge

*Note: Fresh lime juice and fresh lemon juice can be substituted. If using fresh citrus add a dash of simple syrup to taste.
