The Vodka Gimlet cocktail is a tantalizing beverage that has its roots in history, dating back to the 1800s. It was a favorite among sailors who used lime juice not only as an add-on to their vodka but also as a way to ward off scurvy during long voyages. Over time, this mixture of vodka and lime juice was given the name Vodka Gimlet and has since made its way into distinguished bars where it has become a staple. Today, Vodka Gimlets are often garnished with a twist of lime or an edible flower, adding a unique twist on this classic cocktail.
