Hugo Rickey

The Rickey is a classic D.C. cocktail. It's made with gin or whiskey, lime juice, and soda. Hugo is also my cat's name, which is why he is present in the Hugo series of drinks. This Rickey has the characteristic red color of grenadine that functions also as a sweetener.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin
  • 3/4 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. grenadine
  • 1/2 lime shell left over from juicing
Build the drink in a stirring glass full of ice. Stir all ingredients except lime shell. Place lime shell in a chilled highball glass and pour contents of stirring glass into the highball glass.
