City Rickey

City Rickey highball cocktail with gin, triple sec, cranberry juice, lime juice, and sparkling water

The City Rickey is a recipe from mixology legend Dale DeGroff. It’s a cross between a true Rickey and a Cosmopolitan. It’s a light long drink, perfectly refreshing, not too sweet.

This drink isn’t picky about the type of sparkling water you use; in fact, it’s lovely with a citrus- or cranberry-flavored sparkling water.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
