The Gimlet is an exceptionally simple and elegant drink, but tiny adjustments are able to modify the flavour of the drink hugely.
Cocktail Glass (straight up) or Rocks Glass (over ice).
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.
