WHAT DOES GIN RICKEY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

gin rickey

The Rickey

The Rickey is a highball drink made from gin or bourbon, half of a lime squeezed and dropped in the glass, and carbonated water. Little or no sugar is added to the rickey. Originally created with bourbon in Washington, D.C. at Shoomaker's bar by bartender George A. Williamson in the 1880s, purportedly in collaboration with Democratic lobbyist Colonel Joe Rickey, it became a worldwide sensation when mixed with gin a decade later. A recipe for the rickey appears as early as Daly's bartenders' encyclopedia - Page 57 by Tim Daly in 1903 "GIN RICKEY. Use a sour glass. Squeeze the juice of one lime into it. 1 small lump of ice. 1 wine glass of Plymouth gin." Fill the glass with siphon seltzer, and serve with small bar spoon." Since 2008 the rickey has enjoyed a resurgence with the revival of classic cocktails and a group of Washington, D.C.–based bartenders, known as the DC Craft Bartenders Guild, establishing July as Rickey Month. It was also featured with bourbon by political commentator and amateur mixologist Rachel Maddow on the Martha Stewart show for election night, 2008.
