The gimlet is the classic vodka martini's ladylike cousin. When I sip gimlets, I feel as though I'm attending a cocktail party at Betty Draper's house. Gimlets, though consisting of few simple ingredients, pack a layered punch of flavors (thanks mainly to gin's juniper notes).
The Gin Gimlet:
2 parts gin
half a lime (or Rose's lime juice)
splash of simple syrup (omit if using Rose's)
shake with lots of ice
serve very cold
