This is How to Make the Perfect Vodka Gimlet

I love a vodka gimlet. But despite the fact that it’s super-simple to make, a lot of people screw it up—too sour and you can’t drink the damn thing, too sweet and you’ve got a poor man’s margarita. Now there’s nothing wrong with being a poor man, but do you really want to drink like one? I thought not. Here’s how to do it right.

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz sweetened lime juice (like Rose’s)
  • ice
  • lime wheels (to garnish)

Combine ingredients in an ice filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and then serve up in a martini or coup glass garnished with a lime wheel.

This will always be my favorite picture of my mom, because it displays the sheer joy in her face as she reaches for her favorite present-- a roll of twenties. Happy Mother's Day, Terri. You really are the best! ❤️❤️❤️ (And Happy Mother's Day to anyone else reading this, if it applies. And if it doesn't, have a fabulous Sunday!)
