Vodka gimlet? Vodka!?! Gin gimlets are the only way to go. They're easy to make, it's my favourite drink, and I pride myself on being able to find a variation on the theme to make even gin haters like them!
This also reminds me that my grandmother had a paper restaurant placemat like this (but in 70s browns and mustards) with drinks recipes hung on her refrigerator. I used to sit on the counter tops to read it and think about all the glamorous people who would drink such exotic drinks.
