tedvilla's Notes

I upped my lime quotient normally I do 1 part, but this batch rocked, one of my best, ever. This is one of my wife's favorite cocktails. Sometimes I use powdered sugar (heaping tablespoon-full), but simple syrup is better.

I love the gimlet! I don't really like the snap of Tanqueray, but I've had gimlets with Bombay and and Gale Force Gin. This is an easy drink and the ingredients are readily available.

How is it that your last bunch of photographs is sideways? The gimlet is a great old-fashioned simple cocktail. I prefer mine lime-heavy as well. Nice call!
