History

The name comes from the name of the naval surgeon - Gimlette - who introduced this drink as a means of inducing his messmates to take lime juice as an anti-scorbutic.

  1. White Lady

    My favorite aperitif. Tasty and very refreshing!

  2. Cucumber Basil Gimlet

    A light refreshing twist on the classic gimlet.

  3. Burma Hump

    Not quite gin and tonic, not quite a gimlet. It evokes flavors of the British influence in India.

Folks, if you want a superior Gimlet, never use Rose's lime juice. Use ONLY freshly squeezed lime juice with simple syrup. You'll thank me as soon as you take a sip.
