A Gimlet, mixed and ready to drink.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 1/3 simple syrup
  • 1/3 Rose’s Lime (or fresh lime juice)
  • 1 house gin
  • lime slice (garnish)

Mixing Method: Shake

  1. Scoop a mixing glass 3/4 full with ice.
  2. Add all ingredients except the garnish.
  3. Cover with shaker cap and shake well.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass or coupe.
  5. Garnish with a little ice and a lime slice.
  6. Serve straight up or with a straw.

Mixology Notes:

Try making this drink with bottled Rose’s Lime juice, at least once, to know what a ‘proper’ Gimlet tastes like. Later on, when substituting fresh lime juice for the Rose’s bottled lime, use 1/2 simple syrup and 1/2 lime and adjust it to your personal taste.
