Gimlet

About The Cocktail

The first whispers of the Gimlet appeared in 1953 in Raymond Chandlers book ‘The Long Goodbye’. Its name has also been linked to Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette who would add Gin to the Lime juice he’d administer to sailors in order to ward of scurvy. Gin and Navy have a long and complex relationship, the term Navy Strength Gin was actually created after Sailors would test the strength of their alcohol by mixing it with gunpowder. If the gunpowder then refused to light, they then knew that they’d received weak and therefore subpar Gin. You don’t want to come between an Old Salt and his Gin.

Floradora

About The Cocktail

This cocktail is said to have originated at the Waldorf Astoria and was named after the Florodora, a fictional fragrance from the Broadway place of the same name. This was both a homage to the six starlets of Florodora that captured New Yorks imagination and to its playwright, Jimmy Davis, whose extravagant lifestyle and gambling makes for a story more fascinating then the play itself. The pseudonym, Owen Hall, for which he wrote the play under was actually a pun on ‘Owin All’ alluding to the constant financial debt that he’d accumulate.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz Desgin Gin
  • ½ oz Lime Juice
  • ½ oz Framboise Liquor
  • 1 splash Ginger Ale

Garnish

  • 1 Orange Wedge

Process

  1. Shake Gin, Lime and Framboise together then double strain into Collins glass.
  2. Add ice and top with Ginger Ale.
  3. Garnish with Orange Wedge.
