Gimlet Cocktail by Alexandra Whitney New York and Philadelphia Food and Beverage Photographer

I'm in the middle of a campaign for one of my clients Altor. They are about to launch their kickstarter in a few weeks and for the last month, when not making cocktails, I'm shooting for them. After a marathon shoot in DC over the weeks I came home and wanted to make something simple and easy. Plus I didn't feel like going to the store for booze and currently we only we are low on most of our typical selection and really only have vodka and vermouth in the house. After thinking of what I could make with just these two, I remembered that a friend of mine orders this when we get cocktails and figured I'd give it a try. 

It's a classic drink, something you will savor. Because the drink only has two ingredients in them, the higher the quality of them, the better the drink. So set your standards high kids.

  • 0.5 oz vermouth
  • garnish of cocktail onions
  • In a cocktail shaker, stir together the ingredients, then pour into a glass. Garnish with an onion.

    Option:
    • A dash of juice from the cocktail onions - some peoplelike that sweet/salty taste that brings another level of the flavor profile.
