Gimlet

Our version of the Gimlet uses the whole Lime as a flavoring agent. The taste palate is crisp and comes with a lime punch on the tongue. The drink is served with 60ml of gin, which is still smooth to sip at brunch time.

editor recipe notes

The Tanqueray Rangpur pairs well with lime juice and lime oils. We like to shake out Gimlet and use the whole squeezed lime as an additional ingredient. You just need to add a little sugar and shake it well. You will get a smooth, crisp, refreshing cocktail with high alcoholic content.
