When I'm out with friends, I'm usually the only one ordering cocktails made with gin. Gin gimlets. Gin rickeys. Gin and tonics. I really enjoy these classic drinks, even if everyone else at the table has something pink or blue stuffed in a martini glass.
I’ve found a gin recipe that everyone likes though, and it came in my Wegman’s e-mail a while back. It’s a Gin rickey — they call it a lime rickey — and I organic it up as much as possible.
Wegmans has created an easy-to-follow video for the recipe. I’ve included the ingredients for you below.
Here are the ingredients:
- 2-3 cups ice
- 4 cups Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Limeade (or any other organic or fresh limeade you can find)
- 1/2 cup organic agave nectar
- 2 cups ginger ale (Santa Cruz makes an organic ginger ale that’s fairly easy to find)
- 3 cups (or to taste) gin (There are several organic varieties)
- 2 limes, sliced
