Cherry-Lime Gin Rickey
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Gin, seltzer, bitters, lime juice, cherries and simple syrup combine for a truly refreshing cocktail in this gin rickey recipe. For a nonalcoholic rickey, omit the gin and add a little more seltzer.

Ingredients
Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes
  • 3 tablespoons
    sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons
    water
  • 1 cup
    pitted sour or sweet cherries, fresh or frozen (not thawed; see Tip)
  • 1/3 cup
    fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges for garnish
  • 2 cups
    seltzer water
  • 1/2 cup
    gin
  • 12 dashes
    bitters
  •  
    Ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. (Alternatively, combine sugar and water in a small bowl; microwave, stirring once, until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute.)
  2. Puree cherries and lime juice in a blender until mostly smooth. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the sugar syrup (to taste), seltzer, gin and bitters; pulse to combine.
  3. Fill 4 rocks glasses with ice and top with the cherry-lime rickey. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.

 

Tip

Tip: To pit fresh cherries, use a tool made for the job—a hand-held cherry pitter; it also works for olives! Or pry out the pit with the tip of a knife or vegetable peeler.
