An Anglesey gimlet
- 25g caster sugar
- 3 limes, juiced
- 1 shot of Jin Môr
This classic 19th century cocktail offers a sharp citrus hit, with the slight hint of saltiness from the Jin Môr coming to the party. Add a few drops of bitters and this is known as a Bennett.
Like most cocktails, best drunk ice cold with warm company.
Put the sugar and 25ml of water in a small saucepan and place on a medium heat until the water dissolves. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
Put 25g of the cooled simple syrup, the lime juice, gin and a large cube of ice into a cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a chilled glass.
