The Gimlet is an exceptionally simple and elegant drink, but tiny adjustments are able to modify the flavour of the drink hugely.

Glassware:

Cocktail Glass (straight up) or Rocks Glass (over ice).

Method:

Shake with ice and strain.

Ingredients:

Additional Information:

Experiment with using different gins in order to adjust the flavour of this drink subtly, or even replace the gin with a good vodka for a clean crisp taste. You can switch the simple syrup for a flavoured infused syrup like vanilla to really modify the taste, or try it with some muddled cucumber (very fashionable at the moment) for a fascinating flavour. The drink is closely related to the Daiquiri so consider how you can modify the daiquiri and apply it to the Gimlet to create your own classic.
