Cocktail Roulette: Shine Gimlet

Thank god Boardwalk Empire is back... I was definitely missing a little Nucky in my life.  It's helping fill the gap between Seasons 1 & 2 of Game of Thrones.  What would we do without HBO?

As part of our last Cloak & Dinner: The Time Machine, we traveled right back to the Prohibition Era and our master mixologist Isaac cooked up his take on a Gimlet, albeit with moonshine like they'd have made it back then.  Enjoy!

Shine Gimlet
  • 2 oz Moonshine
  • 1oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • ¾ oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 cucumber slices, muddled
  • 6 mint leaves, muddled
  • 2 dashes celery bitters
Muddle together cucumber slices and mint leaves.  Add in your celery bitters, lime juice, simple syrup & moonshine with a heavy helping of ice.  Shake vigorously and strain into a coupe. Garnish with a cucumber slice and/or a fresh mint leaf.
