There’s lots of summer left so try a fruity twist on a traditional Gin Rickey. I used frozen cherries here but you can also use fresh peaches for a summer treat. How about tonight?
- 2 tablespoons sugar dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water (or substitute one tablespoon of Stevia)
- 1 cup frozen, pitted cherries
- 1/3 cup lime juice
- 2 cups club soda (or seltzer)
- 1/2 cup gin
- 10 drops of Angostura bitters
- Ice cubes
Puree frozen cherries and lime juice in a blender. Add the sugar water, club soda, gin and bitters. Blend until smooth.
Serves about 4 in rocks glasses over ice. Garnish with a lime and a cherry.
