Apparently back in the day British naval officers were ordered to drink lime juice on voyages to prevent scurvy. Unfortunately lime juice does not keep well on long voyages so a Royal Navy Admiral named Gimlette figured out to preserve the lime juice in gin. Now, I am not exactly sure what scurvy is but I am fairly certain I don’t want to get it! If I have to drink gin and lime juice to keep from getting scurvy, well so be it.
