Most people think of the Vodka Gimlet as a combination of Vodka with Rose’s lime juice. We’ve notched it up a bit by combining the Rose’s with an equal amount of fresh lime juice.
Of course, the original Gimlet is made with gin rather than vodka and, according to D. B. Wesson in the 1928 “I’ll Never be Cured, III”, the cocktail was “gin, a spot of lime, and soda.”
