Even though we are experiencing an October heat wave here in Richmond, it is technically fall. In Virginia fall means, beautiful foliage, apple picking, pumpkin pie and staying warm and cozy with delicious festive cocktails! Despite the 86 degree temperature outside, we are ready to kick off our fall cocktail recipes! We have some delicious recipes that we have been testing that are sure to delight! First on our list is the Pomegranate Gimlet! Each season brings a new fruit and the fall is all about pomegranates. This basic delicious gimlet is a great way to incorporate the pomegranate. Not too sweet, not too sour, but just right! You should plan on whipping up a batch for whatever fall plans you have this weekend (even if it is 90 degrees).
2 ounces gin
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
