A gin gimlet is one of the easiest summer cocktails that you can make. It takes three ingredients: gin, lime juice, and simple syrup. You can add extras: jalepenos, cucumbers, fruit syrups, and/or mint. It's a great cocktail because with the basics you can make something completely unique and special to you and your occasion or your preference. My favorite is to add blackberry syrup to a gin gimlet. It refreshes the drink, adds a little color, and makes it just a little more than a regular drink.
This cocktail not only looks pretty but it's easy to make and will make all your instagram posts even more special. You already look pretty but with a pretty cocktail, you are amazing. And since it's easy to make, you can treat yourself to a few.

So why wait? Why not have a great summer cocktail that looks like a perfect berry pink color. It's an easy fun afternoon cocktail that you can enjoy while taking in the sun or if you are me hiding from the sun inside with old movies and your dogs.
