The Perfect Serve

This is an interesting take on the historic Gimlet.  The lime is still there, but the addition of kiwi and cucumber adds both a sour and cooling note, taking some of the heat out of JVS Navy Strength

INGREDIENTS

60ml JVS gin
1/2 cucumber, cut
1 tbsp lime juice
60 ml kiwi simple syrup, recipe in post 1 cup ice, to shake with

KIWI SIMPLE SYRUP FOR A GIMLET

For the kiwi syrup, we used 1 cup of organic sugar and 1 cup water with 4 sliced kiwis, peel removed.

Syrups are really easy to make and you can see our guide to making them here. Basically, you just bring the sugar and water to a soft boil until sugar is dissolved. Add in the kiwi and simmer for about 15 minutes.

METHOD

  • In a cocktail shaker add in all of the ingredients.
  • Gently muddle the cucumber and kiwi.
  • Fill with ice and shake really well for at least 35 seconds.
  • The more you shake and let the ice dissolved the better.
  • Strain into a coup or tall thin glass

METHOD FOR THE KIWI SIMPLE SYRUP 

For the kiwi syrup, I used 200g of sugar and 50ml of water with 4 sliced kiwis, peel removed.

Syrups are really easy to make. Basically, you just bring the sugar and water to a soft boil until sugar is dissolved. Add in the kiwi and simmer for about 15 minutes.  Alternatively, you can also buy the Kiwi simple syrup!
