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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
