It doesn’t take much to make a delicious cocktail. Especially with a Meyer lemon just plucked from a backyard tree (thanks Grandma!).

My dad made me this delicious version of a gin gimlet with nothing more than Beefeater, sugar, and a lot California sunshine. These lemons are amazingly aromatic, with notes of jasmine and super fragrant citrus blossoms.  They’d elevate any cocktail, especially one crafted by Dr. Bonfiglio himself.

About The Author

I love all things Italian: the beautiful country of Italia, the Italians themselves, the language, the food… and above all, I love Italian wine. The people I meet in my charmed life are fascinating, the wines are extraordinary. I needed a special place like this to write about them, and to remember them.

    Joanie – is that bottle a quart? If so that’s an antique!

    I am a sucker for gimlets altho I prefer vodka- esp love the oily texture Stoli gives to a gimlet. Hope you all (esp your grandmother) are finding comfort in family. And cocktails.
