This Gimlet has a split spirit base of 50/50 gin and aquavit and 50/50 lime and lemon with lime cordial proving extra citrusy richness. A splash of Swedish punsch alongside the aquavit both adds to the flavour and Viking name.
Created in April 2021 by yours truly at the suggestion of fellow discerning drinker, Nicholas Fiennes.
