Fresh Lime Gimlets

Sure, you can make a gimlet with jarred lime juice (some people say that's the only way to make a gimlet), but we love the tart, mouth-puckering power of fresh lime. Prep Time: 10 minutes. Notes: To make simple syrup: Bring 1 cup each water and sugar to a boil. It keeps, covered and chilled, up to 1 month.

Yield: Makes 6 cocktails
