Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail – Gin Rickey

Celebrate your hard work with this week's Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail, the Gin Rickey

Well I don't know about where you live, but here in Tulsa, Oklahoma summer is officially here. What better way to kick off the hot weather but with a refreshing vintage cocktail. Although the Gin Rickey was created in the late 1890's, it became popular in the 1920's due to its main ingredient, gin.


According to legend, this was F. Scott Fitzgerald's favorite drink and he event mentions the concoction in his novel "The Great Gatsby." He wrote in the novel that Gatsby, Daisy, and Tom drank theirs “in long, greedy swallows.”

  • cracked ice
