Recipe

GIHM-liht

The British say that the secret of a truly good gimlet is thorough mixing with ice. If you substitute fresh lime juice for the Rose’s lime juice, add 1 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar. If desired, the rim of the glass may frosted by dipping it in lime juice, then granulated sugar. Chill the sugar-frosted glass thoroughly before preparing the drink.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. (¼ cup) gin
  • ½ oz. (1 Tbsp.) Rose’s lime juice
  • Lime slice, optional

Directions

Shake liquid ingredients with ice. Strain into chilled glass; garnish with lime.
