How to make a Gimlet cocktail

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
The Gimlet is a gin based aperitif. Very simple to make, it has two main ingredients...
What you'll need: 
50ml Gin
20ml Lime Cordial
Crushed Ice
Short/Old Fashioned glass
Lime wedge
To crush the ice take a plastic food bag. Add the ice and use a rolling pin to smash the ice cubes up (not too much, you don't want snow!).
Add the crushed ice to the glass.
Add the gin and lime cordial and stir for 1-2 minutes (you want a little dilution from the ice).
Garnish with the fresh lime wedge.
The lime cordial should be Roses wherever possible to keep with tradition.
Some prefer this cocktail with vodka.
