I’m A Bit Mixed Up

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:

Fino Rickey

  • .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.

Chichi!
