Lemon Curd, Lemon, Gimlet, Coupe Glass, Explorer's Gin

Lemon Curd Gimlet

I love experimenting with citrus fruit and gimlet and sour cocktails are amongst my favourites. Recently we had a jar of lemon curd left in the fridge that needed to be used, so naturally I started to experiment with it. The natural step was to add lemon curd to a gimlet and the result was a rich, velvety textured cocktail. We also trialed some other variations including a lemon meringue pie cocktail, which all been a great success.

If too much lemon curd is added and the consistency becomes too rich, try adding a splash of soda water to re-balance the flavour.

We recommend trying the Naked Jam, Lemon Curd.
