The Gimlet575 views"A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's lime juice and nothing else" - Raymond Chandler.
It may have been named after British Royal Navy Surgeon General Sir Thomas D. Gimlette, KCB (served 1879 to 1913), who allegedly introduced this drink as a means of inducing his messmates to take lime juice as an anti-scurvy medication.
