During D.C.'s steamy campaign season of 1883, lobbyist Joe Rickey found himself spending lots of quality time at Shoomaker's bar, where he took to a refreshing mix of rye, Apollinaris water, and lemon juice. Lime and gin soon replaced Rickey's preference for whiskey, reinventing the Mid-Atlantic's preferred summer salve.

How to Make It

Place sherry, lime juice, cucumber juice, and salted lime oleo in a highball glass; stir. Top with club soda and fill glass with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and a cucumber ribbon.
