Here’s a lovely springtime cocktail, the gin Gimlet.
From the Plymouth Gin Web site:
Invented by naval doctor Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette (1857-1943), who is said to have mixed gin with the daily rations of lime “to help the medicine go down.”
25 ml Rose’s Lime Cordial
75 ml Plymouth Gin
Fill mixing glass with ice
Pour in both ingredients
Add some chilled water (optional)
Strain into a martini glass
Garnish with lime
Plymouth is a nice, clean, smooth gin. You’ll find many classic gin cocktail recipes on its Web site.
