A personal favorite amongst the classic cocktail list, the Gimlet has long been appreciated one of the best gin sours you will find. The difference is that lime is the citrus of choice here and when that is paired with a traditional gin like a premium London Dry, the drink is sweet, tart, and refreshing.
The unique sweetness of Rose's Lime Juice is typically used in this cocktail instead of fresh squeezed juice, which is uncommon as we often hear that fresh is always better in any drink. However, if you have the time and desire to stick to that adage, a superior Gimlet can be crafted by making your own lime cordial. Another option is to use equal parts of fresh lime juice and simple syrup.
