Nole’s headed off to New York this weekend for some big event or another (you might have heard about it), so we’ve been pretty busy with preparations and not a lot of time to enjoy cocktails. Which is a shame, because all of a sudden our weather went from spring-like to sweltering DC summer-like, and there’s a perfect drink for just this situation: the Gin Rickey. Gin, lime, and bitter tonic water. And ice. Lots and lots of ice. Just what we need these days.Â â€“ Andrew

(p.s. You could also try one with Old Tom Gin or Genever, or mix it up even more and pour yourself a Whiskey Rickey with bourbon.)
