Classic Gimlet and Vanilla Float


D: Home again! This week I was feeling like drinking some Gin, and someone on Reddit was talking about Lime Gimlet, so I was on board with trying that. The float caught Steph’s eye, so that was her choice. Yaaay Gin! [S: Yay ice cream!]

HIS DRINK: [Classic Gimlet]


  • 4oz Tanqueray Gin
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 1 wedge lime

Needed items:

  • Cocktail glass

Add the gin to a cocktail shaker filled with ice, along with the juice from 1/2 lime. Shake until well mixed.

Strain into a cocktail glass.

Garnish with lime wheel and drink.


[Vanilla Float]


  • 1 part spiced rum
  • 2 parts cola
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream

Needed items:

  • Pint glass

Pour the spiced rum and cola into a pint glass.

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, serve with a long spoon.


Classic Gimlet: Delicious. Basically just gin with some lime added to it >.> But that’s pretty much the selling point, very good. It’s a close tossup between Manhattan and Gimlet; I’m not sure which I like better so far, both are so good.. but, I would definitely make it again. Great drink. Very simple, and tasty.

Vanilla Float: S: Delicious. This was a classic float, for adults. Not sure it was wise to down pretty much 90% of it before bedtime, but c’est la vie. Love floats? Love rum? This drink is the one for you. Seriously, go float yourself.
