The Barber Shop Gimlet

There are few gin drinks quite as refreshing as the Gimlet, and none that can be made so simply. A character in Raymond Carver’s The Long Goodbye describes the drink thus: “A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose’s lime juice and nothing else.”

Monin’s new Lime Juice Cordial is made for this Gimlet recipe

This Gimlet recipe makes a great drink, and a big part of that is MONIN’s Lime Juice Cordial — made with 50 per cent juice (a mix of both lime and some lemon) and made, as with all Monin’s sweet stuff, with real cane sugar. It’s got some great, juicy acidity balanced with sweetness.
