Cocktail of the Week: The Debutante

For a while now, Kevin and I have been doing a little thing we call “Cocktail of the Week.” We pick a drink -sometimes a classic like a gimlet or old fashioned, sometimes a concoction all our own- and learn to make it properly. If we don’t have the required ingredients, we run out to our favorite liquor store and buy what we’re missing.

This week, we made a classic gin cocktail, The Debutante, a spin on my all-time favorite cocktail, The Gimlet. It’s really simple and looks gorgeous. Plus, you probably have everything you need to make it already on hand.

Did I mention it’s to die for?

The Debutante

2 oz. Gin
0.75 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons Grenadine

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Enjoy!

What’s your favorite cocktail? Have you ever had a great gin cocktail? Check out our previous Cocktail of the Week, the Brandy Apple, here.

  1. I love gin and I love grenadine so this looks like a winner! My favourite cocktail is a gin and elderflower (yum!) and my favourite fancy pants cocktail is a strawberry bellini (waaay too expensive to enjoy too often!)

  2. These look yummy!! I haven’t really had gin before but I’m not a big drinker. I’ll have to give this a go sometime!
