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

Ingredients

  • 60mL Aviation Gin
  • 30mL Fresh Lime Juice

  1. Fill a Boston glass with ice
