The new refreshing drink of the summer is my concoction the Gin Lemon Rickey.
I employed the "Flavour Shaker" that I bought in a very Euro kitchen store in Amsterdam. It is a kitchen tool made by Jamie Oliver, hence the "ou" in "flavour" (but also because I am Canadian). I don't think it was made to make drinks but essentially it looks like a black Barbapapa that can serve as a mortar and pestle. For more information, see:
Here I mashed up some mint with ice cubes in the implement, then added gin, lemon bubbly water and enjoyed on a hot summer day.
Some famous characters who enjoy the traditional lime rickey:
-people in "The Great Gatsby"
-Karen from "Will and Grace"
