The Gin Rickey is an easy three ingredient drink that is a refreshing combination of gin, fresh lime juice and soda.
The Gin Rickey is related to the Gimlet, another gin-based cocktail with the difference being that the former has no sugar or any sweetener. Also known as the Lime Rickey, the tall drink is built in a highball glass over ice cubes and works well with a London dry or a citrus-forward gin.
If you’re looking for a low calorie drink with no sugar, the Gin Rickey makes a healthier alternative to a Gin and Tonic.
