I don’t blame you if you’re as uncertain as I am of how to make this drink. Sure, the ingredients are as clear as day: Rose’s lime juice and Gin. But nowhere else this side of the Martini do you get as much of a variation in the ratio of the two ingredients.

For everyone else, this variation is overwhelming. William Hamilton sits at the other extreme calling for an 8:1 ratio of the two, but he softens it with a 1/2 oz. of the real thing. Sure, that makes it closer to a 4:1 ratio, but keep in mind, Rose’s Lime Juice and Lime Juice are not the same thing.
