Author Notes: I love a nice cool lime drink on a hot summer evening. I am a self admitted gin hound too. So, The Gin Gimlet is a perfect foil for a scortcher of a day. It has minimal ingredients...only three. It can be made with vodka, but why? It is most important that all the ingredients be very cold. This is my method to ensure a cold and frosty drink.
