Get A Good Dose of Vitamin C With Di's Delicious Pink Gimlets

By The Wild Women On Top Team

A delicious, fresh cocktail that's got a good dose of vitamin C? It sounds too good to be true. But these yummy and easy pink gimlets, created by our Chief Adventure Chick Di, are exactly that. 

Whether you're trying to impress a lover, a friend, a colleague, or a family member - these pink gimlets are the ultimate crowd pleaser. It's a less alcoholic take on the classic gimlet, so you'll get extra fruit juice and reduce the hangover.

These gimlets are fresh, fancy, fast, and they're a favourite in the Wild Women office. 


Ingredients (makes one):

  • 30mL gin (1 shot)
  • 60mL freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (2 shots, a bit less than half a grapefruit)
  • 15mL sugar syrup
  • Lime (to garnish)

Method for the fancy way:

  1. Combine gin, grapefruit juice and sugar syrup into your cocktail shaker (you can change quantities based on your tastes).
  2. Shake with ice.
  3. Strain into a chilled glass.
  4. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Method for the 'Friday night zoom drinks emergency' way:

  • Add a teaspoon of sugar and a dash of boiling water to a glass to make your sugar syrup. 
  • Add ice to the glass.
  • Pour gin and grapefruit juice into the glass.
  • Stir with a spoon.

When we went into lockdown just a few months ago, we started dreaming about where we would hike again. These are the epic local trails that made the top of our list.
We're back, baby! We're back in the wild - walking, talking, leaping, scrambling, and exploring - where we belong. As restrictions begin to ease around the country, we're seeking new, fun fitness challenges to keep us motivated, healthy and active through the chilly winter months. If you're seeking a new challenge, or you've set yourself a Big Hairy Audacious Goal, this is the secret to success.
If you’re anything like me, the past two months has been a rollercoaster of emotions; uncertainty, fear, disbelief, astonishment, worry, disappointment, frustration, anger, acceptance, love, gratitude and, finally, a return of optimism. Through all this, it’s natural for motivation to fluctuate, and it’s definitely time to forgive yourself if your motivation to move and workout has all but evaporated. But now, with restrictions easing slowly, it’s time to re-build your routine and feel fabulous again!
The only down side about this fabulously delicious dish is that if you turn your back, your kids will devour it. Enjoy!
In these challenging times, mums (and dads) are being presented with unique challenges. Many mums are having to work from home, home-school their kids, manage the household, and care for their mental and physical wellbeing. This week, in honour of Mother’s Day, we’re asking the kick-ass mums in the Wild Women office how they’re managing to keep fit and well in isolation. You probably won’t be surprised that all of these incredible queens are getting a good dose of nature – daily!
