This week, we’re giving one last hurrah to summer with a superb cocktail from Portland mixologist Jeffrey Morganthaler: the Richmond Gimlet. It has the brilliant freshness of lime combined with the subtly infused flavors of Tanqueray 10, topped off with a hint of mint.
2 oz Tanqueray No. 10 gin
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
large sprig mint
Shake ingredients well over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
