About Gimlet

The gimlet is a cocktail made of gin and lime juice. A 1928 description of the drink was: "gin, a spot of lime, and soda". A 1953 description was: "a real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's lime juice and nothing else". For the vodka gimlet, replace gin with vodka. Bartenders often answer requests for the gimlet with a vodka gimlet. A very similar cocktail using rum instead of vodka or gin is the daiquiri. As the gimlet was director Edward D. Wood, Jr.'s favorite cocktail, he often used the pseudonyms "Telmig Akdov" or "Akdov Telmig" for his adult novels.
