…after one of these, but speaking of a Hendrick's gimlet, here's a recipe that my brother swears he got from the lovely Suzanne herself: Hendrick's Gimlet 2 oz. Hendrick's Gin 1 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice 3/4 oz. simple syrup To make simple syrup, in a small pan stir 1 c. sugar into 1 c. water and heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Cool. Fill cocktail shaker with ice, add ingredients, shake very well and strain into martini glass. Garnish with lime wedge. Note: You can use any gin, but Hendrick's just seems to have that perfectly balanced floral-herbal character that works magic here. Photo from Eat. Drink. Think.
