Gin Rickey

 

Gin Rickey
 
This summertime classic, named after Col. Joe Rickey, has been pleasing palates since the 1880's.  With a few simple ingredients, basically you end up with a refreshing, carbonated, Lime cocktail.  Purists will tell you not to add any sweeteners to this drink, but if you're looking for a little variety, a bit of simple syrup may do the trick.  Gin, fresh Lime, and Club Soda, never tasted so good, as they do in our featured cocktail, the... Gin Rickey.  Cheers!  Thanks for the suggestion Stevie!  
 
 
Ingredients
 
2 oz. Gin
1.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
4 oz. Club Soda (Mineral Water or Seltzer works too)
Lime Wedge for garnish
 
 
Directions
 
Pour the Gin and Lime Juice into an ice filled Rocks glass.  Add the Club Soda, and garnish with a Lime Wedge.  So simple, so tasty, so summertime... the Gin Rickey!
