Thirsty Thursday: Try This Grown-Up Gimlet Recipe

1
We're firm believers that it's always 5 o'clock somewhere — even if it means you have to start operating on Europe time, it's never too early for a cocktail. (Unless, of course, you're in the office like we are, in which case you live vicariously through others.)

If the wacky weather, or this bizarrely long week, or the stress of debate fury has gotten to you, we've got quite the Rx: Svedka's Colada Rangoon Gimlet recipe. Sure, the name may throw you off a bit, but trust us: This is one vodka concoction that deserves another glance. It's the perfect mix of sweet and sour, and we can't think of a better way to ring in Thursday night — after you clock out, of course. After all, today is National Vodka Day (yes, that's a real thing!). So, give this cocktail a try, and toast to being 4/5 of the way done with the week.
Ingredients:
2 parts Svedka Colada
.75 part simple syrup
.75 part fresh lime juice/sour mix
1 kaffir lime leaf
Instructions:
Pour all ingredients in a mixing tin (including kaffir lime leaf), add ice, and shake. Strain into a cocktail or martini glass, and garnish with 1 kaffir lime by clapping the leaf in hand and placing it in the glass.
