Cocktail: Gimlet


The gin Gimlet was said to have been created when a Navy surgeon added lime cordial to the men's daily gin allowance to help combat scurvy on long voyages. While we may not need it for it's 'medicinal' purposes nowadays, it's a classic we're happy to enjoy anyway...

75ml gin (Plymouth gin preferred)
15ml Rose's lime cordial
Lime wedge or slice, to garnish

Add cordial and gin to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Pour into chilled Coupe glass and serve with a slice of lime.
