For those that may not know, the Rickey is DC’s native cocktail and every summer the DC Craft Bartenders Guild celebrates our hometown creation with a contest. Here’s my submission:
The 96th Degree Rickey
2.0 ounces Woodford Reserve Bourbon
0.75 ounce Lime Juice
0.50 ounce House made Hibiscus & Habanero Cordial
Coconut Soda to fill
Mix all ingredients in a highball glass over ice and stir to combine. Garnish with lime.
