The gimlet is a classy little cocktail made of gin and lime juice. A 1928 description of the drink was: “gin, a spot of lime, and soda.” It’s an incredibly easy drink to make – just a few ingredients shaken together and you’re on your way. We love how Rockpool’s event spaces, Alfred Place and The Rock Rooms, serve their gimlet with a lemongrass straw for an extra kick of flavour and fun.
20ml fresh lime juice
20ml spiced lime cordial (infuse lime cordial with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and red chillis)
1 kaffir lime leaf
Shake and strain into a rocks glass with ice.
Garnish with a lemongrass straw.
