The Rise and Fall of the Lime Rickey, the Soda Fountain Comeback Kid

To most New Yorkers, it means a cherry-tinged treat. To many New Englanders, it's a fizzy raspberry soda. For the purist, it's all about the lime—and only the lime. One thing's certain: The lime rickey is the soda fountain's comeback kid. A refreshing mix of lime juice, fruit or sugar syrup, and seltzer, the lime rickey owes its origin to its alcoholic forefather.

The best comforts transcend seasons: a soft scarf, pie a la mode, a good Bloody Mary. At Mayahuel in New York's East Village, the warm-spiced Black Star is one such year-round pleasure. "This became part of what I called my Indian Winter menu," says Philip Ward, co-owner and bartender, who added the Black Star to the menu as spring started to creep in.

The Outer Banks: By Land and Sea

When the dunes roll up on either side of the road and sand begins to spill onto the shoulder, you’ve arrived. With the Atlantic to the east and the Pamlico Sound to the west, the ride down Highway 12 is reason enough to take a trip to North Carolina’s Outer Banks. But it’s certainly not the only reason.

The Best Things to Do in Peekskill, NY

You want views. Some good eats and a bit of shopping wouldn’t hurt, either. And you’d rather not travel more than an hour from the city. Some may call your getaway ambitions high maintenance. You call them discerning. And with Peekskill sitting pretty just over 40 miles from Grand Central on Metro North’s Hudson line, you can also call them realistic.

How To Make PDT's Gingerbread Man Cocktail

To develop the perfect recipe for his Gingerbread Man cocktail, Jim Meehan, the owner of PDT in New York's East Village, decided to go straight to the source. Unable to catch him, Meehan looked up a gingerbread cookie recipe instead. "The recipe calls for ingredients like cinnamon, cloves, sugar, egg, molasses, and ginger" says Meehan, who turned to The King's Ginger, a deep and flavorful Scotch-based ginger liqueur to express the latter.

About

Jaclyn Einis

I'm a Boston-bred, SF-based writer, wont to wander. Auspiciously born on on Thanksgiving, I spent my first day on earth wearing a turkey hat and have had food on the brain ever since.

I'm passionate about building brands, crafting strategic marketing campaigns, and telling the stories of farmers, chefs, and other makers and shakers.

A freelance journalist, copywriter, and content marketer, I've wordsmithed at the likes of Green Chef, Shutterfly, Fab.com, and Food & Wine magazine, and covered the worlds of cocktails, slow food, and sustainable travel at Serious Eats, Clean Plates, and offMetro, among other outlets.

I see the forest for the trees, but I also notice the chipmunk skittering across a branch, the crunch of leaves, the smell of pine, and would like to know if those mushrooms are edible.
