The Best Garnish For A Classic Gimlet Cocktail
A proper gimlet cocktail, made with lime juice, sugar, and gin, is simple and refreshing. Its origins were a way to prevent scurvy, but it has since adapted to modern preferences.
For the perfect garnish, use a lime wedge or a sprig of herb, such as mint or rosemary, as their pungent aromas and flavor profiles complement the herbal gin beautifully.
While this cocktail has undergone transformations and can have many variations using vodka or elderflower liqueur, lime remains a delightful, classic garnish for this cocktail.
