Though the original Rickey was created with bourbon in the mix, it gained popularity only when bourbon was supplanted with gin. The mix of gin, lime and soda water made it a cool refreshing drink and unlike the Mojito ( a popular relative) the Rickey was far simpler to make.
60 ml Gin (Or bourbon)
1/2 a lime
1. Combine the spirit and lime (along with it’s shell) in a highball glass. A wine glass also serves well in a pinch
2. Add 2-3 ice cubes and stir well, letting the mixture soak
3. Top up with soda water and serve.
