About this Cocktail

A simple classic, but one that is mediocre if the balance isn't hit just right. I like mine tart and with some orange bitters thrown in.

  • 2 oz. Dry Gin
  • 1 oz. Lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. Simple syrup
  • 2 Dashes orange bitters

Shake and strain into a coupe. Optional garnish of a lime wheel.

    My first real drink. A Rudder family favorite. Will have to try this version ASAP. This weekend perhaps?
  • Brandon Herring
    Perfect timing, just working on a list of classic cocktails.

    Nix the simple for 1/4 oz agave nectar and 1/4 oz cold water. You'll never go back. Eva.

    Nice tip! Gotta try.

    Now this Gimlet I like.
