Thirsty Thursday: Vintage Edition


The gimlet is a cocktail made of gin or vodka and lime juice. A 1928 description of the drink was: "gin, a spot of lime, and soda."[1] The description in the 1953 Raymond Chandler novel The Long Goodbye stated that "a real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's lime juice and nothing else".[2] - Wikipedia

2  1/2 oz of Gin
1/2 oz of Lime Juice
1/2 oz of Simple Syrup
Shake over ice and strain into glass
Garnish with Lime Wheel

Enjoy learning another vintage drink!
