It is said that a Surgeon, Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Desmond Gimlette (1857–1943) in the Royal Navy used to mix a concoction of gin and lime juice for the seamen and other ships officers as a prevention to scurvy during long sea voyages. However, there would be no fancy mixing on board ships in those days.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini style glass.
Decorate/Garnish with zest of lime.
