The Classic Gimlet

The Gimlet is an easy classic cocktail made with gin and lime juice. There are a lot of variations, so we’ll cover the traditional recipe with lime cordial and an equally simple modern take made with fresh lime juice and simple syrup.

Find this recipe and many more in my newest book, The Essential Bar Book for Home Mixologists, available on Amazon!

Although more palatable interpretations are most common these days, an early recipe (from the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book) lists the Gimlet as equal parts gin and lime cordial, ice optional.

More disturbing is the version listed in my 2015 reprint of the same book, which just calls for equal parts gin and lime juice. Yikes. So how did this enduring classic go from tepid and medicinal to cool and refined?
