There’s no vodka in a Gimlet. 
The “Gimlet” is a very simple gin cocktail.  Yes, gin.  Not vodka.  If you use vodka it’s no longer a “Gimlet”, it’s a “Vodka Gimlet”.  Sure, most people prefer vodka, but it changes the drink, changes the name, and changes the meaning.  It’s an abomination.  Just look at all the damage that can be done by changing one little word or group of words:
“…jobless recovery…”

There’s no vodka in a Gimlet.
2 oz      Gin
½ oz     Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice
Lime Wedge

Put 4-5 ice cubes in a martini shaker
Add the liquids
Shake vigorously
Strain into cocktail (martini) glass
Garnish with a lime wedge

If you decide to defy me on this and use vodka, be sure to drink it with the following meal:

Oven-fried Boneless Wings 

Vegetarian Hamburger 

Natural Cheetos

Low-Fat Ice Cream 

And eat it all with Plastic Silverware.

There’s no vodka in a Gimlet.
