Suggest 2 different shaken cocktails with gin. One of them should be sweet.

Cocktail Colin says:

quote start
I found two cocktails that match your criteria. One of them is a classic Gimlet, which is a shaken gin cocktail with lime juice and sugar syrup, providing a sweet taste. The other option is a Gin Fizz, which is also a shaken gin cocktail, but it's slightly more tart due to the addition of lemon juice and sugar syrup. Both are delightful choices for shaken gin cocktails.
