Classic mixed drink. Alternative to a Gin & Tonic. A Gin Rickey is made with 2 oz Gin, juice of 1 lime, club soda, and a lime wedge for garnish in a highball glass.

The drink was created at Shoemaker's in Washington D.C. and a popular hangout for Congressmen. It was named after Colonel "Joe" Rickey, a lobbyist who died in 1903 and was known for entertaining elected officials in the area lounges.

Gin Rickey's were also a personal favorite of American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby.

They're Delicious.
Stuck halfway through my novel, writing past 3am I poured myself a Gin Rickey and my imagination was spilling over every side.
