Awesome DC Official Drink! The Rickey
July 16, 2011 Leave a comment
After 128 years, our politicians finally pulled their head out of their ass and agreed on a legislation to recognize “The Rickey” as the native cocktail of Washington D.C. The drink was invented in 1883 at a D.C. bar popular with politicians and reporters where the JW Marriott is located now (14 & Pennsylvania ave). At the time the place called Shoomaker’s saloon. The drink is made with gin or whiskey, lime juice and club soda.
Having been on this side of the Atlantic since March, I can’t wait to get back to DC in September and try out the drink 🙂 Till then, you all enjoy it for me 🙂
