Cordial was invented to stave off scurvy at sea, supplying sailors with a preserved form of vitamin C. The officers of the British Navy combined it with gin, the prototypical Gimlet. Below decks, the common sailors combined cordial with their daily ration of grog, usually watered down rum. This drink is essentially a rum gimlet served over crushed ice. It’s a sweet citrus drink, best enjoyed on a warm sunny afternoon. Given it's origins, we thought this drink's moniker deserved a nautically themed reference: The Andrea Doria.

Short shake ingredients with ice. Strain into a fizz glass filled with crushed ice. Serve with a straw. No garnish.
Here's how to make our lime cordial. Zest 8-12 limes and set zest aside. Juice all the limes. Weigh the juice and measure out an equivalent amount of sugar. Pour lime and sugar into a sealable container and add zest. Seal, shake until sugar is dissolved, and leave to infuse for 24 hours. Strain through a fine mesh strainer. It will keep in the fridge for ... a month maybe? We've never had the opportunity to test this. It’s usually consumed in a week or two.
