The gimlet is another classic cocktail with many available variations on the amount and type of lime juice used. This one has an option for a bit of simple syrup if you happen to like your drinks a little sweet.
- 3 Oz. Gin
- 1.5 Oz. Fresh Lime Juice
- 1/4 - 1/2 Oz. Simple Syrup (optional)
Sugar frost the rim of a cocktail glass (a gin glass would be perfect) and chill. Add ice, gin, lime juice, and simple syrup to a mixing glass. Stir until the ingredients are well combined. Strain the drink into the pre-chilled, sugar rimmed glass.
