Friday 18 Sep 2009: The origin of the gimlet cocktail
It is generally assumed that gimlet cocktail (1/2 gin, 1/2 lime juice) was named after Sir Thomas D. Gimlette, a British naval surgeon. He introduced this recipe as a means of inducing his messmates to take lime juice to prevent scurvy (scheurbuik in Dutch).
