Gimlet

Gimlet cocktail with gin and lime cordial

This drink should really have kept the name “Gimlette,” for the man who invented it: the Royal Navy’s Surgeon General Sir Thomas D. Gimlette. He came up with this concoction as a way to convince his fellow sailors to drink lime juice to ward off scurvy. If only we could take all of our medications in such a fashion! A commercial lime cordial like Rose’s will do alright, but it’s not too hard to make your own infinitely superior cordial – just search online for a recipe.

Cocktail Party is so much better

I've tried so many cocktail apps and uninstalled them all after hours of frustration. Cocktail Party is so much better. Beautiful UI, very intelligent suggestions, easy to follow recipes. A winner 100%.
