Today, let’s teach you how to make a gin gimlet, the best way. Let’s mix some easy gin cocktails and maybe lay down some knowledge for ya.
The beauty of creating an easy gin gimlet without roses lime cordial lands on the fresh flavor of the cocktail. Just the right sour lime bite to make it all worth while.
The gin gimlet would have been a great way to avoid scurvy for the royal navy (and pirates if they were smart) as you can infuse your lime with more flavor and allow for the correct vitamins while keeping it for longer voyages.
However, the navy would no doubt have watered this down more so than bringing 60 ml into a Royal Navy Sailor as it would make for a short trip!
The Gin Gimlet
2 oz / 60 ml London Dry Gin
1/2 oz / 15 ml Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz / 15 ml Simple Syrup
Lime Wheel Garnish
