Cool Fall Breeze Vodka Gimlet
Serves: 1
  • 2 oz. Vodka
  • 1 oz. fresh Lime Juice
  • ¾ oz. Simple Syrup
  • 3 slices of fresh Jalapeño
  • 2 small sprigs Rosemary
  • 2 strips of fresh Cucumber
  • Brown Sugar for rim of glass
  1. Add Vodka, Lime Juice, Simple Syrup, 1 Jalapeno slice and 1 small sprig of Rosemary in a cocktail shaker with ice. Gently shake and strain into the cocktail glass.
  2. Garnish with Cucumber, remaining Jalapeño slices and Rosemary sprig. Enjoy immediately.
  3. Note: Remove the seeds from the Jalapeño prior to assembling the cocktail. If you are not a fan of very subtle heat, these are not completely necessary. However, the slight heat mixed with the aromatic rosemary and cool cucumber are absolutely delicious and I urge you to try it. If serving over ice, simply pour over ice and enjoy.
  4. Swap Idea: I included Brown Sugar for the rim to keep this festive during the holiday season. Add sea salt for the rim garnish instead of Brown Sugar and taste this cocktail in a whole new way. The salt highlights the flavors in a completely different, equally delicious way.
