1960's - 1970's Fashion and Cocktails -- The Gimlet

Let's face it what goes around comes around again. So it is with fashion. So it is with cocktails. While checking out the 1960's fashion of Mad Men the women were ordering Gimlets. When checking out the 1970's fashion of the now cancelled Swingtown, they were drinking Gimlets. Then when reading Julie & Julia, Julie was drinking a Gimlet. So here is the recipe for a fashionable cocktail, The Gimlet.

1 1/2 oz Gin or Vodka
1/2 oz Rose's Lime Juice
Garnish With Lime

Put into shaker half filled with ice, and shake well, pour into a Martini Glass, or shake and pour over ice into a Highball Glass. For a Fizzy Gimlet add a splash of Sprite or Soda.

Please Drink Responsibly. Do Not Drink And Drive!!
