SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
Express 3 lime zests into glass and discard before pouring drink. Lime wedge on rim.
The Gimlet is usually stirred but unless you've super strained/clarified your freshly squeezed citrus juice then even if stirred this cocktail won’t be perfectly clear. So do as Harry Craddock directs in his 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book and use some elbow grease to shake and invigorate this upper decks cocktail.
