Tipsy Tuesday: Ginger-Bourbon Rickey

On this fine Tipsy Tuesday, let's talk about the Rickey.  It's a DC-born and -bred drink that's not much more than liquor, lime, and soda water.  In fact, DC's pride for the Rickey runs so deep that it has been proclaimed the official cocktail of DC, and July has been declared Rickey Month.  So, in honor of the close of Rickey Month 2012 here in the Nation's capital, we bring to you a little Rickey concoction of our own.


Ginger-Bourbon Rickey

2 oz Bourbon
1 oz Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
1/2 Lime
2 dashes Angostura Bitters (optional)
Soda Water

In a highball glass full of ice, squeeze the lime juice of half a lime and throw in the lime half.  Add the bourbon, liqueur, and bitters, and stir.  Top off with soda water. Enjoy.
