Whiskey Rickey

Whiskey Rickey highball cocktail with whiskey, lime juice, and sparkling water

A Rickey is a simple, refreshing drink with just three ingredients: a spirit, lime juice, and sparkling water. Gin Rickeys are the most well-known member of this fizzy-sour family, but we think the delicious Whiskey Rickey deserves its moment in the sun, too.

Bourbon is our go-to whiskey here, but it’s fine with anything: a blended whiskey, Irish whiskey, even a peppery rye or a smokey scotch (although we’d leave the fancy single-malts on the shelf for this one).

Instructions

Build the ingredients in a tall ice ice-filled glass in the order given. Give it a gentle stir to incorporate, and garnish with a lime wheel, wedge or twist.
