Minty Gin Rickey Recipe | Cocktail Recipes | PBS Food

Similar to a mojito, this Minty Gin Rickey recipe is made with gin, lime juice and club soda in an iced highball glass with muddled mint. (Recipe Credit: Marc Matsumoto of Fresh Tastes)


Yield: 1 drink


  • 1/2 lime cut into 4 wedges
  • small handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons gin
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Club soda


  1. Put the lime wedges in a highball glass and use a muddler to crush the limes.
  2. Add the mint leaves and gently muddle again. You want to lightly bruise the mint, but you don't want to tear it into little bits.
  3. Fill the glass with ice and then pour in the gin and lime juice. Top it off with club soda. Give it a stir to combine and then garnish with a sprig of mint.
