The first recipe for the basic gimlet appears as early as 1852, which no joke, was for a prescription to cure cholera. Dr. Goodeve Chuckerbutty’s patients were to mix gin, sugar, water, and lime juice every four hours until cured.
The drink was ultimately made popular when it appeared in Raymond Chandler’s 1953 novel “The Long Goodbye.”A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose’s lime juice and nothing else.” We beg to differ, Mr. Chandler!
Here’s our refreshingly minty take on the gimlet.
