Vodka Gimlet

The Vodka Gimlet is not a drink to be toyed with. Unlike its gin counterpart, which can slink and sway beneath a periodic table of botanicals, a good Vodka Gimlet should be two things and two things only: cold and strong. Keep your vodka in the freezer—and keep it away from the bottle of Rose’s collecting dust on your bar. The concentrated lime cordial, upon which many a Gimlet has suffered, is no substitute for fresh-squeezed lime juice and sugar syrup.

  • 3/4 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Simple syrup
  • Garnish: Lime wheel
