It’s been unseasonably warm here in Kansas City. As much as I want to dust off my boots, I’ve decided to embrace the warmer weather and milk it for all it’s worth. It’s sunny and 70 degrees today! How could I complain?
I wanted to share this refreshing cocktail with you, in the hopes that you’ll savor this warm weather with me. Let’s sit on the patio and enjoy a cool cucumber drink. There’s still plenty of time for pumpkin spice everything.
What is a gimlet, you ask? It’s like a martini, but with lime juice instead of vermouth. This version has been my sipper of choice lately, which was inspired by an elderflower martini that I enjoyed with Tessa in Minneapolis. It’s made with cucumber-y Hendrick’s gin, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, fresh lime juice and cucumber.
