Gimlet Cocktail

A classic emerging from the British Royal Navy after the development of Rose's Lime Cordial, the Gimlet has withstood the test of time. You can use pretty much any gin you like (or, gasp, even vodka), but if you want your drink to be seaworthy we do recommend you choose a bottle of navy strength gin.
