“A real gimlet,” insists a character in Raymond Chandler’s The Long Goodbye, “is half gin and half Rose’s Lime Juice and nothing else. It beats martinis hollow.” That classic cocktail is one of my favorites, an easy, juicy aperitif. Imagine my dismay, then, when the eager-to-please starched-white-shirted bartender at Georgia realized there was no Rose’s in stock.

It was a forgivable oversight. The restaurant, which adjoins the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum on Johnson Street, had only recently opened its doors. Anyway, the determined bartender concocted a laudable substitute by muddling fresh lime and sugar. (She had to use the wooden handle of a steak knife, since the bar also didn’t yet have a muddler.)
