Perfect Drink® recipe


The Gimlet is a classic cocktail of gin and lime juice. It shares a similarity to the daiquiri, which is made with rum instead of gin. This recipe is closest to the description in the famous Raymond Chandler novel The Long Goodbye: "a real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's lime juice and nothing else."
