Bourbon Rickey


The original Rickey (also called a Joe Rickey at the time) was made with whisky (probably bourbon).  Afterwards a number of variations popped up with the base spirit used as a part of the name.  One variation, the Gin Rickey became hugely popular, totally overshadowing the original whiskey version that Col. Rickey had invented a decade before. Though its cousin the Gin Rickey is more common today, try this classic cocktail recipe with bourbon.



  •  Half a lime
  • 1.5 oz Bourbon
  • Club soda
  • Glass: Highball


Fill a highball glass with cracked ice.

Squeeze the lime half into the glass and drop it in.

Add the bourbon and fill with club soda.

Stir briefly to combine.
