Gimlet

The derivation of the name of the cocktail is contested. It may be named after the tool for drilling small holes (alluding to its “piercing” effect on the drinker), or after Surgeon General Sir Thomas Gimelette, (RN 1879-1913), who is said to have first added lime cordial to the daily nip of gin for the men in the Royal Navy to help combat the ravages of scurvy on long voyages.

Recipe

1.5 oz gin
0.75 oz lime
0.75 oz simple syrup
