Scotch Rickey Instructions

The Scotch Rickey is a classic cocktail that combines the smoky complexity of Scotch whiskey with the refreshing fizz of club soda. It's a simple and refreshing drink that is perfect for a warm summer day or as a pre-dinner aperitif.

To make a Scotch Rickey, start by filling a highball glass with ice. Add a shot of your favorite Scotch whiskey, followed by the juice of half a lime. Top it off with club soda and give it a gentle stir. Garnish with a lime wheel or wedge for an added touch of citrus.

The Scotch Rickey is a versatile cocktail that can be easily customized to suit your taste. If you prefer a sweeter drink, you can add a splash of simple syrup or a sugar cube. For a more herbal twist, muddle a few fresh mint leaves in the glass before adding the whiskey and lime juice. And if you're looking for a smokier flavor, opt for a peated Scotch whiskey.

Whether you're a fan of Scotch whiskey or just looking to try something new, the Scotch Rickey is a must-try cocktail. Its simple yet sophisticated combination of flavors is sure to impress your friends or guests at your next gathering. So grab your favorite bottle of Scotch and give this refreshing cocktail a try!

Best served in a Highball Glass.
