Gimlets remind me of my father in law, Ray. He’s not a big drinker, but when he does have a cocktail, it is always a gimlet. I’m pretty certain he has never tried it made quite like this, but I can’t wait to make him this version. And if he doesn’t love it, I wouldn’t mind this delightful cocktail 🙂
