Busy, busy, busy. That has been my July and August (so far) in a nutshell. Lots of work but also lots of fun things, including a trip with family to sunny San Diego where I tried In-and-Out Burger (the veggie option) and stand-up paddle boarding for the first time. I give the former a B+ and the latter an A+. I also had a great weekend visit here in Chicago with an old friend. It’s fun to be a tourist in your own city every now and then. So far, it’s been a stellar summer.


This post is about the lime rickey. It’s a refreshing, summery, and easy cocktail. It really hits the spot after a long day of work. I have no idea if this is the authentic way to make this drink, but it’s the way I like to make it.

I’ll be back soon with some great summer vegetable recipes we’ve been cooking! ~Inge

serves 1, scale accordingly

In a cocktail glass, squeeze the juice from half a lime. Drop the juiced lime half in the glass. Add a tiny pinch of salt and a drop or two of agave syrup. Add your desired amount of gin. Drop in 2 ice cubes and top off with club soda. Give it a quick stir and enjoy!
