The Kimmy

By , from the Culinate Kitchen collection
Serves 1


The Kimmy is named after my friend Kim, and it blends and borrows from several drinks: the gin and tonic (of which we’ve had more than one together), the mojito (one of her favorite drinks), and seltzer (a watering-down trick I learned from her). For a non-alcoholic variation of this drink, mix Mint Simple Syrup with seltzer and serve over ice with a mint sprig garnish.


1 shot gin
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon and/or lime juice
¼ cup Mint Simple Syrup
~ Seltzer water
~ Mint sprig for garnish


  1. Fill a chimney or tall glass with ice. Pour the shot of gin, the citrus juice, and the simple syrup over the ice. Fill to the top with seltzer water, stir to combine, and garnish with a mint sprig.
