The gimlet was one such early cocktail. According to a 1928 description of the drink, it was gin and a spot of lime.
For the more modern variation of the gimlet, mix the following ingredients together over ice and strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
2 ½ oz. gin
¾ oz. Rose’s lime juice
Some recipes from the 1950s included the addition of simple syrup to give the drink a sweeter taste.
