Ten Wildebeests in a Teacup

I mentioned i have been reading Raymond Chandler, Right?

"The Long Goodbye," page 19:

"We sat in the corner of the bar at Victor's and drank gimlets. 'They don't know how to make them here,' he said. 'What they call a gimlet isjust some lime or lemon juice and gin with a dash of sugar and some bitters. A real gimlet is half gin and half Rose's Lime Juice and nothing else. It beats martinis hollow.'"

So ther you have it. The real reason I am so sozzled. Raymond Chandler's recipe for a gimlet, or at least his character Terry Lennox's...
