If you like gin and you like lime, you will love this! I made this for the Western Region Faceless Frenzy, July 2012. My gin loving friends were more than happy to help with this!

I use Rose's sweetened lime juice. Simple syrup and fresh lime juice make this an average drink. I prefer Vodka over Gin. A vodka Gimlet is a delicious lime tasting drink.
