Gin Rickey

Order a drink like this in most bars, and they’ll give you gin and sparkling water with a sad little dried-up wedge of lime – and you’re lucky if they squeeze it for you! The real thing needs plenty of fresh lime juice to tie the drink together.

Since this is such a simple recipe, it’s a great canvas for experimentation with different styles of gin.

Build in the order given in an ice-filled glass, and garnish with a lime wedge.
