Adding tequila instead of gin to a Rickey cocktail makes it a bit more playful and fun. Make sure you rim the glass with salt otherwise it loses much of its appeal and presentation.


  • 1-1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • Ice
  • Cold club soda
  • 2 wedges of lime
  • Salt for rim


  1. Place a highball cocktail glass in the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
  2. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of the prepared glass, and then dip into a small plate of salt to adhere.
  3. Fill the glass with ice and then pour in the tequila. Squeeze the juice from the second lime wedge into the mixture and then drop the wedge into the glass. Top with the cold club soda and serve immediately.
