So, you don't like lemon. Or you've run out of them. Do you like lime? The gin rickey is, at its most basic, a Tom Collins made with lime rather than lemon, and just as tasty and refreshing.
- 2 oz gin
- 3/4 oz lime juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
- club soda
Shake over ice, pour into a Collins or other tall glass and top with club soda.
The Lime Jakob non-alcoholic version is 1 1/2 ounces of lime juice with 2 ounces of simple syrup over ice and topped with club soda.
