This past Christmas, Mark gave me an adorable candle with an interesting twist. The scent is French Gimlet (elderflower and grapefruit) and is a part of Paddywax’s Mixology collection. Each candle has a cocktail recipe on the back, which, of course, we were excited to try, especially since we enjoy regular gimlets so much.
Though it’s a sweeter cocktail than I normally have, it was a nice refreshing drink on a cold winter’s night. It made us forget that it was still February for a few hours. I can see it being a great option for the end of a hot summer day.
French Gimlet Gin Cocktail Recipe:
- 2 oz dry gin
- 1 oz elderflower liqueur
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 slice of lime
Combine the gin, elderflower liqueur, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake, and pour into a cocktail glass. Finish with the lime slice, and enjoy!
