Synopsis >

The Gimlet is an old style navy drink most likely invented when sailors in the British navy mixed their ration of gin with lime juice. A 1953 description was: 'a real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's lime juice and nothing else' (Terry Lennox in Raymond Chandler's The Long Goodbye). Thus, Robert Hess shows you how to make a gimlet with Hendrick's Gin and Rose's Lime Juice, going against the idea that fresh is always better.
