The Vodka Rickey

You'll need

2 tbsp dried cranberries, steeped in 45ml Plymouth Gin 45 ml pomegranate juice 30 ml lime juice 10 ml simple syrup (see note) 60-90 ml soda water 2 lime wedges To serve: ice or crushed ice To serve: mint sprigs


  • 01
  • Place steeped cranberries (including gin) in a tall glass, add pomegranate juice, lime juice and simple syrup, then add soda water and lime wedges. Stir to combine, add ice and a straw, garnish with mint and serve.

Note To make the original Vodka Rickey, simply pour 30ml of your preferred vodka into a tall glass, squeeze in two lime wedges, add ice, top up with soda water to taste, and serve. Here's a modern twist on the original. To make simple syrup, combine equal parts of sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir to dissolve sugar, bring to the boil, then cool. This recipe is a direct submission from Alexx Stuart of Luxury Tastings; we haven't triple-tested it as we do every other recipe we publish in the magazine. Therefore it's intended as a guide only.
