The Gin Rickey is a classic mixed drink. This highball is very simple (gin, lime juice and club soda) and is very refreshing and a good alternative to a Gin & Tonic.

The story goes that the drink was created at Shoemaker's in Washington D.C., a popular hangout for Congressmen. It was named after Colonel "Joe" Rickey, a lobbyist who died in 1903 and who was known for entertaining elected officials in the area lounges.
