Gimlet

The gimlet is a cocktail made of gin and lime juice. A 1928 description of the drink was: “gin, a spot of lime, and soda.

The word “gimlet” used in this sense is first attested in 1928. The most obvious derivation is from the tool for drilling small holes, a word also used figuratively to describe something as sharp or piercing. Thus, the cocktail may have been named for its “penetrating” effects on the drinker.
