That's Not A Gimlet

When I was young(er) a common source of refreshment was lime cordial topped with soda water.  This is as much a shorter grown-up version of that as it is a virgin gimlet. It's actually much better than I anticipated and makes me want to try the Mocktini found in The Complete book of Mixed Drinks. Another timeperhaps.


Mock Gimlet Mockimlet
0.5 oz lime cordial
2 oz tonic water
Stir with ice and  strain in to a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime flavoured cherry.

Cheers!

How have I missed lime flavored cocktail cherries?

Perhaps they're "Canada only?"
