Description

The lime rickey is an outrageously refreshing drink that works as a cocktail or mocktail! It’s equally as delicious with gin or virgin.*


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) fresh lime juice*
  • For a cocktail: 3 ounces gin or whiskey
    For a mocktail: 1/4 teaspoon caper juice or pickle juice**, 1/2 ounce simple syrup, or omit entirely
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) soda water
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)
  • For the garnish: lime wedges

Instructions

  1. Add the lime juice and alcoholic or non-alcoholic mixer (whiskey, gin, caper juice or simple syrup) to highball glass and stir.
  2. Fill with ice and top with sparkling water. Garnish with lime wedges.

Notes

*For a fruity spin, go to Cherry Lime Rickey or Raspberry Lime Rickey.

**Caper juice or pickle juice may sound unusual, but they’re a way to mimic the flavor of alcohol (see our Virgin Margarita).
