Review:

Schumann uses fresh citrus sourness to balance rich lime cordial but opts for lighter lemon juice rather than lime as is classic with a Gimlet.

History:

A riff on the classic Gimlet created in 1983 by the famous bartender and cocktail author Charles Schumann of Munich, Germany. This "Schumann's Gimlet" is one of several Gimlet recipes in his 1995 book American Bar book.
