City Style and Living Magazine gimlet cocktail recipe

/ K&S Media

Once favoured by the British Navy for preventing scurvy, this refreshing cocktail is simple to make. Although the original recipe calls for gin, vodka can be substituted as an alternative. Some recipes use only Rose’s lime cordial (or lime juice as it’s known in the US) for a citrus kick, but we like amped up flavour of fresh juice.

2 ounces gin
1 ounce Rose’s Lime Cordial
¾ ounce fresh lime juice

Pour the gin, Rose’s and lime juice into a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lime wedge.

This original cocktail first appeared in the Fall 2016 issue of City Style and Living Magazine.
