You Can Enjoy F. Scott Fitzgerald's Favorite Cocktail With Just 3 Ingredients
It's said that famed "The Great Gatsby" author F. Scott Fitzgerald's favorite cocktail was the gin rickey, which is also the only cocktail specified by name in the book.
For those who want to take a step back in time and experience a taste of the Jazz Age, Fitzgerald's beloved classic gin rickey recipe couldn't be any easier to create.
The cocktail contains only three basic ingredients: gin, lime, and club soda. While it seems simple, the lack of added sugar allows the gin to take center stage for a robust taste.
If you're not a fan of gin, try a bourbon or whiskey rickey, which is composed of the same ingredients but swaps the gin for different spirits.
Other simple swaps can be done by using flavored club sodas, like cherry, strawberry, mango, and grapefruit. For sweetness, add a few splashes of fruit juice or flavored syrup.
