One of my favorite drinks! I usually make mine 2:1 gin to Rose's Lime (the best sweetened lime juice) and garnish with a lime instead of the sugared rim. Read More

This wasn't very good. tasted like limeaid not a gimlet. You're supposed to use Rose's Lime Juice AND fresh lime and no sugar. I generally use vodka too. Oh well. Read More

One of my favorite cocktails! I only used fresh lime juice. I don't think the sweetened would be very good but I like sour flavors. Read More

I agree that gin and lime are a great combination! The gimlet is one of my favorite cocktails. This one is way too sweet for me even without the added sugar. I usually use 1 sweetened lime juice and two parts gin. When I have fresh limes on hand I like to use 2 oz. gin 1/2 oz. Rose's and 3/4 z. fresh lime juice. Read More

Use Duffy's Lime Juice if you can find it. Best in Gimlets and Margaritas. Read More
