I thought it was about time to mix up some wine into a cocktail, well, another one. I looked around and found this recipe for a fino rickey: sherry, gin, squeeze of lime, and seltzer. I mixed it up, and it was lacking, but a double dash of orange bitters did the trick. It’s still not my ideal drink, but it’s not a bad summer cooler. Try it out:
- .75 oz – Gin (Gordon’s)
- .75 oz – Fino Sherry (Taylor’s Golden)
- .2 oz – Lime Juice
- Seltzer Water
- 2 dashes – Orange Bitters (Regan’s #6)
Stir up everything except the seltzer with ice, then top up with seltzer.
You know, as I sip this drink there’s actually something about it. I can’t really put my finger on it, but there’s just something intriguing about it.
Pictures to follow.
