sweetened lime juice
One of my favorite drinks! I usually make mine 2:1 gin to Rose's Lime (the best sweetened lime juice), and garnish with a lime instead of the sugared rim.
This wasn't very good. tasted like limeaid, not a gimlet. You're supposed to use Rose's Lime Juice AND fresh lime, and no sugar. I generally use vodka, too. Oh well.
One of my favorite cocktails! I only used fresh lime juice. I don't think the sweetened would be very good but I like sour flavors.
I agree that gin and lime are a great combination! The gimlet is one of my favorite cocktails. This one is way too sweet for me, even without the added sugar. I usually use 1 sweetened lime juice and two parts gin. When I have fresh limes on hand, I like to use 2 oz. gin, 1/2 oz. Rose's, and 3/4 z. fresh lime juice.
Such a retro drink! It just makes you feel so sophisticated. I love it!
My abosolute favorite drink. A classic that you cannot go wrong with.
This drink was a hit! I used the Rose's sweet lime juice and it was perfect! I will definately be making this drink more often!
Use Duffy's Lime Juice if you can find it. Best in Gimlets and Margaritas.
