A classic Fifties drink that's as simple and satisfying as cocktails come: White sugar sweetens up lime juice and gin ...the rim of the glass gets sweetened, too.

Place sugar in a shallow dish; dip rim of chilled glass into sugar so rim is coated. Scoop ice into a shaker. Pour gin and lime juice over the ice, and shake well. Pour drink into prepared glass.


  • 2 fluid ounces gin
  • 2 fluid ounces sweetened lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 cup ice
