The Raspberry Gin Rickey

The Raspberry Gin RickeyThis delicious and refreshing cocktail is a great summer drink—combining the perfect amount of sweet and tart.

The Raspberry Gin Rickey was a regional favorite in New England where the combination of raspberries and limes give a fruity twist on the traditional gin rickey.

The rickey is a highball drink made from gin or bourbon, half of a lime squeezed and dropped in the glass, and carbonated water. It was originally created in Washington, D.C. at Shoomaker’s bar in the 1880s. The refreshing highball is named after Joe Rickey, a Democratic lobbyist living in Washington, D.C.
