The gimlet is a classic cocktail that is very easy to make. This refreshing drink is a sweet and tart blend of gin, fresh lime juice, and simple syrup.
While a traditional Gimlet is often made with gin, it is also not uncommon to substitute the gin for vodka depending on your preference.
More like this:
- 2 ounces gin or vodka
- 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- 3/4 ounce simple syrup
- Lime wheel for garnish
- Add the gin (or vodka), lime juice and simple syrup to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
