Sloe Gin Rickey

You knew it was coming after the Rickey, the Whiskey Rickey, the Kirsh Rickey, and Hugo Rickey, there had to be a Sloe Gin Rickey out there somewhere. It's just too good of an idea to pass up. Like all Rickey's this one has no sugar added, but still manages to be a sweet drink from the sloe gin, which is sweeter than dry gin. It also has a great red color like the Hugo Rickey and is an easy drink to make for the summer.

Finally, more than any other sloe gin drink, it has that memorable flavor of the Icee slush that we all had as kids. It really takes you back to that trip to the amusement park or the zoo and that wild logo
on the side of the Icee truck.

  •  2 oz. sloe gin
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • club soda
  • lime slice
Build drink in a Collins glass full of ice with sloe gin and lime juice. Top with club soda and stir. Add lime slice for garnish.
