Gin Gimlet June 30 2020, 0 Comments

A gin gimlet is a classic cocktail made of lime juice, gin and simple syrup. It’s sometimes served with a splash of soda water. While it became popular in the 1950’s, a recipe for a gin gimlet cocktail was included in a 1930’s cocktail book, so it stems back to at least that far!
