Never mind the Gimlet, if it's a short, sharp refresher you're after on a sunny spring evening try a Daiquiri, which essentially replaces the vodka with rum.


60ml (2oz) white rum

22.5ml (0.75oz) lime juice
1 teaspoon fine sugar
Lime peel to garnish

Place ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a small, preferably chilled martini glass and garnish with a twist of lime peel.

Although I refuse to count out vodka entirely, I'm beginning to become more conscious of its limitations, in cocktails at least. Rum, by contrast, is growing on me.
