Tokyo Kaikan Gimlet

These last two months, I could not tell you if I was coming or going.   Finally a weekend to catch my breath.   Looking forward to getting the garden plot ready for the fall season, and evenings enjoying a good meal, and a good cocktail.

It has been awhile since I posted a cocktail recipe.  My apologies.

1 Tbsp, plus 2 tsp. fresh lime juice
1Tbsp. simple syrup

  1. That's okay. Wine worked just fine. :)I fixed your polenta with sausage and parmesan last week (can't remember the exact name) as well as your oatmeal cookies. You are w-a-y up on my husband's list now. He loved them both.


  2. I love a good refreshing gimlet. Though you know me, the ex cocktail bartender has to question things….why is this a Tokyo cocktail? I thought there'd be sake? It's almost a traditional gimlet but I don't understand the use of Rose's lime as well as fresh lime and sugar syrup. One or the other. But I'm glad you had a chance to relax and enjoy a cocktail…I had a kaffir lime mojito in L.A.!
