A twist on a white chocolate martini, this White Chocolate Gimlet with Mozart White Chocolate Liqueur is sure to please!
With this cocktail we really wanted to highlight the flavor of the white chocolate vanilla cream of the Mozart. It’s a sweet liqueur, but not overly sweet, and is a beautiful white color. We could have done a dessert cocktail, but we really didn’t want to change up the flavor or color of the white chocolate, so we made a White Chocolate Gimlet!

The classic gimlet cocktail was made up of gin and lime juice. In a 1928 description it was “gin, a spot of lime, and soda”. Then in a 1953 novel there was the description that a gimlet was “half gin and half Rose’s Lime Juice and nothing else”. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I would want that! Try our Lilac Gimlet, though!
White Chocolate Martini
Modern cocktails seem to be less sweet, and we prefer less sweet most of the time, so when we make a classic gimlet, we shoot for the tart flavor of fresh lime juice, a little splash of simple syrup and gin. With this White Chocolate Martini twist on the classic gimlet, we added most of the sweet with the Mozart White Chocolate Vanilla Cream Liqueur.
White Chocolate Gimlet
We wanted the tang of the classic gimlet, so of course we needed lime. We didn’t want just straight lime juice though, because the original calls for Rose’s Lime Juice, which is a cordial, so we made it ourselves. Our homemade version wasn’t as thick as Rose’s, as we didn’t add citric acid. We did boil the simple syrup, lime juice and lime zest together, which made for a lighter lime flavor.
What Ingredients are Needed for the White Chocolate Gimlet?
- Mozart White Chocolate Vanilla Cream Liqueur
- Lime Cordial
- Chocolate Bitters
Also, sometimes with adding straight citrus juice to a liqueur can break the liqueur up, and make it separate. We didn’t want that, so we helped keep that from happening. The cordial made for a lighter sweeter lime flavor.
Mozart White Chocolate Vanilla Cream Liqueur
The Mozart White Chocolate Vanilla Cream Liqueur played very well along with the floral juniper flavor of the gin and the citrus of the lime, which makes this one a great sipper for the summer. Most white cocktails are winter themed or heavy with hot chocolate or coffee. We didn’t want that with this, so we offer you this lighter tangy version!

A White Chocolate Martini but with a classic gimlet cocktail twist. They converge to make a creamy, tangy drink!
- 2 ounces gin
- 1.25 ounces Mozart White Chocolate Vanilla Cream Liqueur
- .50 ounce Lime Juice Cordial
- 2 dashes Chocolate Bitters
- For the Lime Juice Cordial: squeeze the juice of 1 lime, 3 tablespoons of simple syrup, zest of half a lime. Combine all ingredients in a small microwave safe bowl and bring to a boil - about 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds. Let cool slightly before using.
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and make sure to shake really well. Shake for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
- Pour into a coupe glass with ice if desired. Garnish with a lime wheel.
The citrus juice and the liqueur can separate if not shaken enough. Make sure to shake for a while for this not to happen.
