A drink that used to be gin and roses lime cordial has turned into a category of its own now, with bartenders using fresh fruits to create any flavoured cordial to either shake or stir up with gin. Simple yet oh-so-delicious, this classic cocktail is a great drink if you want to ease yourself into Martinis.
