Acerca de:

Believed to have been created by bartender George A. Williamson in 1880 at Shoomaker's Bar in Washington DC and named after Colonel Joe Rickey, who it is said Williamson witnessed squeeze lime into his whisky before topping his drink with soda. Coincidentally or not, Colonel Rickey went on to become a major importer of limes into the US.

The Gin Rickey cocktail first appeared in print in Harry Johnson's 1882 ‘Bartenders Manual’ where Harry calls for a “medium size fizz glass” to be used with “1 or 2 pieces of ice; squeeze the juice of 1 good-sized lime or 2 small ones; 1 wine glass of Tom or Holland gin if required; Fill up glass with club soda, carbonic or selters if required, and serve with a spoon.”

Many confuse the Rickey and the Collins. For the record a Rickey is made with lime juice and a Collins with lemon juice. A Rickey is also usually served in a shorter glass than a Collins but that difference is secondary.
