Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe.
This week: The Ricky Ricardo at Cafe ZuZu
The Ricky Ricardo is a real OG. While other cocktails have come and gone on ZuZu's cocktail list, this one stands the test of time and once it hits your lips, you'll understand why.
(Recipe after the jump.)
2 oz. Three Olives Cherry Vodka
½ oz. Fresh-Squeezed Lime Juice
3 oz. Ginger Ale
In a shaker-- combine vodka, lime juice, ginger ale, and ice. Shake; use care when shaking this Valley Ho due to carbonation. Garnish with a lime wedge and cherry, serve in a chilled martini glass. Use this liquid courage to fake a sweet accent and introduce yourself to other "out of town-ers". Hey, it might buy your next round.
