  • I top it off with a couple of ounces of soda water and it's a lovely light summer drink. — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Gin is great with cukes and lime. Why not together? Truly excellent summer libation. Not too sweet! — ☆☆☆☆☆

Merging is a good idea.

Merging is a good idea.

"Eastside" (one word) seems to be a more popular name and may predate that German gimlet. The "Eastside Cocktail" appears in Imbibe dated 2009 and "Eastside Gimlet" in Diffords, where it is claimed this was a 2004 long drink by George Delgado (Libation, NYC) before the up version was popularized by Christy Pope at Milk&Honey. Punch and others haveb obvious riffs on this (with gin and cucumber) called things like "There is no Eastside".
