Happy Birthday, F. Scott Fitzgerald – swell writer, husband to a screwy skirt, boozehound.
Fitzgerald’s favorite hooch was the gin rickey.
- 2 oz gin
- 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
- 4 oz club soda
- lime wedge
Fill a highball glass with ice, add gin and lime juice. Top with club soda, garnish with lime wedge.
Dipping your bill, Deadsplinters? What’s your choice of giggle juice? I think I’ll put down some panther sweat. Off the tiger milk? Don’t take a powder, beat your gums about something else. It’s all copacetic.
