Gimlet Cocktail

Gimlet Cocktail

1/2 Burrough’s Plymouth Gin. (1 1/2 oz Plymouth Gin)
1/2 Rose’s Lime Juice Cordial. (3/4 oz Rose’s Lime, 3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice)

Stir, and serve in same glass.

Can be iced if desired.

Yeah, sorry, couldn’t quite hang with 100% Rose’s here.

I have to admit I don’t think I’ve had a gimlet for years. Now that I think about it, maybe ever. Was a favorite drink, however of one of my aunts.

All in all a pleasant cocktail. That Rose’s sure has a weird flavor, though. Tastes like Coconut or something to me. Might have to start making my own, per LibationGoddess’ procedure here.

Or if you’re lucky enough to be in San Francisco, stop by the Slanted Door and ask for a Gimlet. Jennifer Colliau has a house made lime cordial behind the bar there and it is quite spectacular.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.

  1. Gimlets – yum!

    Sounds a bit heavy on the roses though – I prefer them with just a little splash of cordial. Or fresh lime.

    Will look out for that Slanted Door one though…
