Rose’s Lime Juice was created as a means to preserve citrus juice without alcohol in the 19th-century. And there’s no better way to feature its unique properties than with a gimlet, a cocktail fashionable in the post-prohibition, Art Deco heyday of the 1930s and 40s.
- 2 or 2 1/2 oz. gin
- 1/2 oz. Rose’s preserved lime juice
- Lime wedge, as garnish
1. Fill a shaker with ice and add the gin and preserved lime juice.
2. Shake well and serve in a cold martini glass or over ice in a rocks glass.
3. Garnish with lime wedge.
