The Gimlet is classic cocktail that is the perfect go-to cocktail for the home mixologist — especially in the summer. It's easy, quick to put together and can be customized in all kinds of fun ways. The drink may be made with gin or vodka. Classicists tend to prefer gin in their Gimlets but the vodka version is popular too. Here are some variations that are fairly easy to come by or make yourself.
