Recipe: Gimlet Cocktail


Recipe: Gimlet Cocktail
Dave Scantland
The homemade lime cordial in this cocktail is much stronger and sweeter than products like Rose's Lime Juice; if you're using a commercial cordial, double the lime cordial and use about half the fresh lime juice.

Yield: 2 servings


  • 4 ounces dry London gin
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce homemade lime cordial (recipe here)


1. Place all the ingredients in a shaker with lots of ice and shake hard.

2. Strain out into two chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a wedge of lime or a twist of lime rind, if desired.
