First created to help prevent scurvy on English Naval ships as officers weren't taking their rations of lime for it's vitamin C - hence why this recipe calls for fresh lime juice rather than Rose's Lime Juice which is commonly referenced in many cocktail books such as The Bartender's Bible by Gary Regan


  • 60mL Aviation Gin
  • 30mL Fresh Lime Juice
  • 15mL Sugar Syrup (1:1)


  1. Fill a Boston glass with ice
  2. Add the Aviation Gin, fresh lime juice and sugar syrup
  3. Shake and stain into a chilled coupe glass
  4. Garnish with a lime wheel
