Apollo Inn offers a considered cocktail list of old-world classics with new-world sensibility, created by Bar Manager Cameron Parish who has taken the lead at Apollo Inn.
“Gimlet is a venue where everything and anything is okay. It’s one of the only places in Australia, in my opinion, where the drinks and food are on a level playing field. Usually one takes priority over the other.”
There are few gin drinks quite as refreshing as the Gimlet, and none that can be made so simply. A character in Raymond Carver’s The Long Goodbye describes the drink thus: “A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose’s lime juice and nothing else.”
This Gimlet recipe makes a great drink, and a big part of that is MONIN’s Lime Juice Cordial — made with 50 per cent juice (a mix of both lime and some lemon) and made, as with all Monin’s sweet stuff, with real cane sugar. It’s got some great, juicy acidity balanced with sweetness.
