The holidays, though delicious, exciting and a helluva good time, can be stressful. Sometimes, you just need a relaxing night in with a good book and a stiff drink. You need a Gimlet.

2 tablespoons sweetened lime juice, such as Rose's
1 lime wheel, for garnishing
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake gin and lime juice for about 1 minute. Pour into a martini glass. Garnish with the lime. Makes 1.
