Gimlet Cocktail Recipe

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 Gin (2 oz)
  • 30mL Fresh Lime Juice (1 oz)
  • 22.5mL Simple Syrup (¾ oz)


  1. Combine all the ingredients into your cocktail shaker
  2. Shake with ice
  3. Strain into a chilled coupe glass
  4. Garnish with a lime wheel
