About the Gimlet Cocktail

It doesn’t get much simpler or more refreshing than the classic Gimlet.

Ingredients in the Gimlet Cocktail

  • 2.5 oz Gin
  • .5 oz Lime juice
  • .5 oz Simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water)

Garnish: Lime wheel

Glass: Cocktail or Old Fashioned

How to make the Gimlet Cocktail

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass or an Old Fashioned glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.

(You can substitute 1 oz lime cordial, such as Rose’s Lime Juice, for both the lime juice and simple syrup.)

  1. I’m disappointed to see this site using the quick and easy way to make this drink,

    Instead of Roses Lime, use a fresh squeezed lime and a teaspoon of powdered sugar… it makes a much more refreshing drink
