Tequila Gimlet

The gimlet always seemed to me to be a poor man's Margarita. Even when made with gin, the recipe only called for liquor and lime cordial. No real lime juice or additional sugar was needed, just cheap syrup. I've even heard stories of people collecting snow because they didn't have a freezer for making ice.

Nowadays, no one would do a gimlet without fresh lime juice and simple syrup. The Tequila Gimlet is still simple, like a Margarita without triple sec.
  • 3 oz. silver tequila
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
