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
