Sweet Gin Rickey

Gin Rickey

Ah, the Gin Rickey.  Often confused with it’s cousin Tom Collins, Rickey uses lime for a cool, refreshing taste.  Here’s my version.  Try one while the Summer heat (or Winter cool) lasts in your area!

Sweet Gin Rickey

1 1/2 oz (45 ml) London Dry Gin

1 oz (30 ml) Simple Syrup (1:1)

3/4 oz (22 ml) Fresh Lime Juice

5 oz (150 ml) Seltzer Water (adjust to taste)



Shake all ingredients (except seltzer) with ice.  Pour over fresh ice in a tall Collins glass.  Add seltzer to fill the glass.  Garnish with lime.


Let me know if you like this one or if you have a better version!
