Celebuzz Cocktail Hour: The Classic Gin Gimlet by Drizly

Top 10 Wine Lovers Must-Haves
If you enjoy wine, then you're going to need these.

It is always good to embrace a classic.

“Some believe the Gimlet cocktail was named after a British Royal Navy doctor that may have served this to his crew in order to ward off scurvy. The lime juice and gin combination make a classically refreshing cocktail served up or down over ice, it always delights.” — Trisha Antonsen, chief cocktail at Drizly.com.

Whichever gin you choose to make your Gimlet is up to you, but please do splurge a little. The Classic Gin Gimlet is one of Drizly’s Zodiac cocktails which are based on the different sign’s personality traits. Say hello to the Taurus cocktail:
