Gin Rickey Recipe

Come Party With Me: Father's Day — Drinks

Every day, sometime after 5 p.m., my father indulges in a Tanqueray and tonic. He always garnishes it with a fresh lime wedge and has practiced this afternoon ritual for as long as I can remember. When I found this recipe for a gin rickey recently on Gourmet, it totally reminded me of my dad! Thus, for Father's Day, I plan on making gin rickeys. It's a simple cocktail that combines gin with fresh lime juice and seltzer water. Since my Pops is partial to tonic, I'll make his with diet Schweppes. Get the easy and refreshing recipe when you
