How to Make a Vodka Gimlet from Scratch

Replacing store-bought lime cordial or juice with our homemade version makes our gimlet fresh, zesty and bright. They are a little sweet, but not overly so. If you prefer them less sweet, add an extra squeeze of lime juice to each drink or bump up the vodka by a 1/2 ounce to 1 full ounce to balance out the syrup. The recipe below makes enough lime cordial for 4 cocktails (about 1 1/4 cups).
