Cocktail of the Week: Saito Dry Sake Gimlet
The Cocktail of the week series is a chance for us to experiment and incorporate our product offerings into delectable, no-frills cocktails. These will be concoctions that can be recreated with everyday ingredients found in your home.
Our superior Sales Specialist, Rav, is back once again with a simple cocktail recipe that will keep you busy this weekend. For this week's rendition, we looked to the effortless Gimlet for inspiration.
With it's rich history that dates back to the 1920s, the Gimlet has been mentioned throughout novels and cocktail books ever since. The Gimlet is simple and can never go wrong - it really is just a mixture of gin and lime juice. The provenance of its name though, has often been contested over the years. It could've been named after the drilling tool, where the drink has a 'piercing' effect on the drinker. The Gimlet could've also been named after Sir Thomas Gimlette, a navy officer who apprently added lime cordial to gin which aided fellow crew members who had scurvy on long voyages in the early 1900s.
At Asiaeuro, we have modified this old recipe, and created our very own version of the Gimlet. Find the recipe to this effortless cocktail below.

50ml Saito Dry Sake
