It’s a Rickey (not a Lucy!)

There’s lots of summer left so try a fruity twist on a traditional Gin Rickey. I used frozen cherries here but you can also use fresh peaches for a summer treat. How about tonight?

  • 2 tablespoons sugar dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water (or substitute one tablespoon of Stevia)
  • 1 cup frozen, pitted cherries
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 2 cups club soda (or seltzer)
  • 1/2 cup gin
  • 10 drops of Angostura bitters
  • Ice cubes

Puree frozen cherries and lime juice in a blender. Add the sugar water, club soda, gin and bitters. Blend until smooth.

Serves about 4 in rocks glasses over ice. Garnish with a lime and a cherry.
