The Gimlet

cheers!

This month's Cocktail Crawl is probably one of the easiest cocktails to make, welcome to “The Gimlet”.

Two parts of gin & one part of lime.

Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice.

Shake well and strain into a chilled Martini glass.

For a cocktail variante, replace the gin with vodka to create a “Vodka Gimlet”.

But where does this name come from?

There is some famous attributions about this drink, one comes from the name of a naval doctor, Sir Gimlette, and the other one from a small tool used to tap barrels of booze on-board.
