I have really been enjoying the old standard drink recipes, lately. Today it was a gin rickey. Very simple and very satisfying. Cold and effervescent, the flavor of the gin really shines through. No sugar!
- 1 1/2 oz gin (I used Beefeaters)
- Juice of 1/2 lime, fresh squeezed
- Club soda (I used Perrier mineral water)
Fill a highball glass with ice cubes. Squeeze in the lime. Pour the gin. Fill with sparkling water.
