Classic Gin Sour a Pink Gin Gimlet Cocktail

When it comes to classic cocktails, a Gimlet has been popular since at least 1928, when the word was first used to describe this libation. Short on ingredients gin, lime juice and sugar, this cocktail packs a punch. The Gimlet is also classified as a gin sour which we’ve given a rosé touch with our Original Rosé Gin. Santé!

Cuisine English


  • 1 1/2 oz Mirabeau Dry Gin 25ml for a lighter serve
  • 1 1/2 oz Fresh Kaffir Lime Juice regular limes work too
  • 3/4 oz Sugar Syrup
  • Ice Cubes
  • Lime Rind for garnish


  • Add a generous handful of ice cubes to a shaker and combine the ingredients. Shake the ingredients and strain over your martini glass. For that bar-chic garnish, carefully peel the rind around the width of the lime and roll once to create a glass-ready twirl.


Piece de Resistance
For that ice-cool serve, pop your martini glass in the freezer 1-2 hours before serving. For an aromatic boost, add a touch of the Kaffir lime rind to your sugar syrup, heat through and re-cool.

Maison Mirabeau Wine

Maison Mirabeau Wine

Stephen had been in the corporate world for 15 years and in August 2008 turned down a promotion that would have meant more money but also more stress, longer hours and less time with his young family. For many years the Cronks had been dreaming and talking about moving to France to make their own wine, but the moment never seemed quite right to make the big leap.

Soon after, a good redundancy offer seemed the perfect opportunity to turn the dream into reality and after selling their beloved house, they left the leafy suburbs of south-west London in August 2009. Their worldly possessions were packed up on the back of a truck and with barely a word of French between them, the family headed south to a small village called Cotignac, in the heart of Provence.

The Cronks spent a year getting their bearings, learning to live the provençal way, as Stephen was criss-crossing the country researching and finding the best vineyards to work with. The next step was setting up a small wine business with the principle objective of making a Provence rosé that would be regarded as one of the very best from the region, while building a brand that people would grow to love. In order to achieve this aim, they put together a highly experienced winemaking team and threw their heart and soul into the brand and innovative communications with their customers. Mirabeau is now being sold in more than 30 markets, has won medals and earned acclaim from some of the world’s toughest wine critics, but what really makes Stephen happiest is that their wines are an integral part of people having a great time together.
