Ingredients: Gin or vodka, fresh-squeezed lime juice
Why it’s a classic: “The gimlet is a combination of gin and lime cordial—though, these days with fresher ingredients being used behind bars, fresh lime juice with a touch of sugar appears too. It is a perfect, easy drinking cocktail to enjoy on a summer’s day by the pool.”—Laboy
2 oz gin (or vodka)
⅔ oz Rose’s lime juice
Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
