"I like my drinks sour. Not like sour mix sour, actually sour. Nice and tart. And this really fits the bill. And, while it looks complicated (juice all those lime?! Really?), the results are worth it."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Fill ice into cocktail glass and place in the freezer.
  2. Place 2 lime wedges and the sugar cube into a cocktail shaker and mash well with a cocktail muddler. Pour in ice, lime juice, and vodka, cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted.
  3. Remove ice from cocktail glass; wipe dry with a paper towel. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of the glass. Strain the contents into the chilled glass and garnish with a twist of lime zest.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can juice the limes in a juicer or by hand.
  • Do not use a sweetened lime juice! Your gimlet will go from punchy and tart to sickeningly sweet in no time.
  • A white sugar cube can be substituted for the raw sugar cube. However, granulated sugar will not work.
