How to make a Gimlet

Once drank for medicinal uses, the Gimlet is now a refined person’s drink. Though made using only three simple ingredients, we’ve seen bars these days serve this up as a luxurious, high-priced tipple. It’s definitely delicious and addictive, and if you’re using the right kind of gin, it sure can be a costly cocktail. Make it as fancy (or as simple) as you want at home with these easy steps.


  • 60ml gin
  • 15ml fresh lime juice
  • 15ml simple syrup
  • Garnish: Lime wheel


  1. Chill coupe glass in the freezer
  2. Fill shaker with ice, add in gin, lime juice and syrup, then shake well
  3. Strain mixture into chilled coupe glass, garnish with lime wheel and serve
