Veckans Cocktail – Gin Rickey
Dessa inlägg kommer att övergå till Svenska i slutet av mars.
Now we’re finally doing a Gin Rickey!
Since two weeks back I’ve been wanting to do a Gin Rickey, but the store didn’t have any limes so I bought a grape instead… However, after “perfecting” that experiment I’m back to the Gin Rickey.
I really like the Tom Collins, and I also like the Grapefruit Collins I did last week, so it would feel wrong not to do the Gin Rickey when I’ve been waiting to post about it for two weeks haha! I’ve seen a lot of different versions of doing the Gin Rickey, but my absolute favorite is by doing it as I do a Tom Collins but with Lime instead. By doing that you’ll get what I think is perfect balance.
Gin Rickey Recipe:
5cl Gin (I used one of my favorites, Blekinge Gin by @oneninespirits)
3cl Lime juice
2cl Simple Syrup
5cl Soda Water
Shake the gin, syrup and lime juice with ice. When cold pour in the soda water in the shaker, when you later strain this over a glass with ice it will be more mixed in than just pouring the soda water afterwards.
Gin Rickey is an absolute favorite when it comes to soda based drinks and I just love the taste of lime, it’s a bit sharper and less “clean” than a lemon and that just might be it. I like to do it like this, I’ve seen with or without syrup, but I would do it with syrup or lime cordial since it will balance out a lot of flavors.
In this glass, I used the Starla DOF glass by Libbey from @barkonsultnordic.⠀
