How to Make a Gin Gimlet?

The Devilfish Gimlet is a delightful cocktail that combines the bold and distinctive flavours of Manly Spirits Australian Dry Gin with the zesty brightness of lime juice and the balanced sweetness of simple syrup. This refreshing drink is both classic and contemporary, making it a perfect choice for those seeking a crisp and flavourful cocktail. Here's how to create this tempting drink:


  • 60 ml Manly Spirits Australian Dry Gin
  • 30 ml Lime Juice
  • 30 ml Simple Syrup
  • Fresh Lime

Coupe Glass


1. Prepare the Coupe Glass:
Begin by chilling a coupe glass. This is typically done by placing it in the freezer for a short while before preparing the cocktail. A chilled glass ensures that your Devilfish Gimlet stays refreshingly cold.

2. Shake with Vigour:
In a cocktail shaker, combine 60 ml of Manly Spirits Australian Dry Gin, 30 ml of freshly squeezed lime juice, and 30 ml of simple syrup. The gin brings a complex depth of flavour, the lime juice adds a zesty tartness, and the simple syrup provides the perfect level of sweetness.

3. Add Ice and Shake:
Fill the shaker with ice cubes, securing the lid tightly. Shake the cocktail vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. The shaking not only chills the mixture but also thoroughly blends the ingredients, creating a harmonious fusion of flavours.

4. Double Strain into the Chilled Coupe Glass:
Using a fine-mesh strainer, double strain the cocktail into the chilled coupe glass. Double straining helps ensure that no ice shards or pulp make their way into the final drink, resulting in a smooth and pristine presentation.

5. Garnish with a Lime Wheel:
For an elegant finishing touch, garnish your Devilfish Gimlet with a lime wheel. The lime wheel not only adds a pop of colour but also offers a fresh citrus aroma that enhances the drinking experience.

5. Serve and Enjoy:
Your Devilfish Gimlet is now ready to be enjoyed. The combination of Manly Spirits Australian Dry Gin, lime juice, and simple syrup creates a beautifully balanced cocktail that is both bright and slightly sweet. Sip slowly, savoring the refreshing and well-crafted flavours.

This cocktail is a testament to the art of mixology, showcasing how a thoughtful combination of quality ingredients can result in a sophisticated and delightful drink. Whether enjoyed as a prelude to a meal or as a relaxing refreshment, the Devilfish Gimlet is sure to please the palate. Cheers!
