Leave it to someone of Dr. Thacher’s vintage to school us in the art of an original. The popular Gin Rickey was likely first made with whiskey rather than Gin. Dr. Thacher’s Whiskey Rickey syrup combines the best of both worlds by mingling the juniper and citrus to great effect. It’s a classic worth reviving.
