The Gimlet is a classic cocktail that has been around for over a century. The origins of the drink can be traced back to the late 19th century when British sailors were given lime juice to help prevent scurvy while they were at sea. To make the lime juice more palatable, they mixed it with gin, creating a drink that is now known as the Gimlet. The traditional recipe for a Gimlet includes gin and lime juice, which is typically served in a chilled cocktail glass and garnished with a lime wheel. Over the years, variations of the drink have been created, such as using vodka instead of gin, or adding sugar or other sweeteners. The Gimlet has become a popular cocktail that is enjoyed by many around the world.
