Vodka Gimlet

1.5 oz vodka

Fill your shaker 2/3 of the way with ice and pour 1.5 oz vodka and 1oz Rose’s sweetened lime juice into it. Give it a nice shake and pour the contents into a martini glass. Take one quarter of a lime and press it all around the rim of the glass so it gets fresh lime juice on it. Squeeze the remaining juice into the Gimlet. Don’t stir and drink it straight up.
