Another refreshing alcoholic beverage, courtesy of Gourmet Today! Oh Gourmet Today, with your luscious, lime-green cover, is there any need you can't fill? I await the next version, which perhaps will have a chapter on food and intimacy, and then I'll never have to leave the house again, except perhaps to resupply.
A stunningly simple drink that is fantastically delicious if you love the components, which I do--gin, and Rose's lime juice. It's said this drink was invented by the British Navy in the 1800s as a way to convince sailors to take their daily ration of scurvy-preventing lime juice. Very innovative! Makes me look kindly on the British Navy, who also by the way preserved Admiral Nelson's body in a barrel of rum so they could get him home in shape for a state funeral. The things you can do with alcohol!
Should you be likewise inclined to prevent scurvy in your house, here's the recipe for 2 gimlets: 1/2 cup gin, 2 tablespoons Rose's lime juice. Shake shake shake in a cocktail shaker, and either pour over ice into a rocks glass or strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
You may have noticed, by the way, that although I stated earlier that I'd be blogging about Drinks, Vegetarian Main Courses, and Grilled Dishes, I haven't really explored the other two. That's because when I come home at night I don't say, Man, I could use a Tempeh Burger!
But I will! I'll get there, it just won't be as quickly. Stay tuned!
