Peach and Rose Rickey
The Rickey is a classic Highball variation originally created for the Missouri born Democratic Lobbyist Colonel Joe Rickey, whilst at Shoomaker’s bar in Washington DC in the 1880s. It was simple but refreshing mix of Rye, Soda and Lime but the drink really became a classic when the Rye was substituted for Gin shortly after.
Over a century later, our head cocktail curator Neil Donachie presents his spin on the classic, with a hyper seasonal take on this warm weather libation, with the fruity and floral flavours of Peach and Rose.
