Did you ever hear “Eat your greens” or “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” growing up?” My Granny’s Gimlet cocktail brings those quotes to a whole new level. You will get your “greens” and your “apples” with this drink; of course a little tequila never hurt anyone! The healthy green color and the clean fresh delicious taste of this cocktail keeps you honest.
