Salted Fino Rickey

Starring Fino

This cocktail is a fun play on a gin rickey, an iconic and refreshing DC cocktail. Just like a classic Rickey, this cocktail is no frills and easy to make and easy to drink. It's refreshing and slightly vegetal with a nice touch of salinity.

serving and consuming

Pairing Fino with food

It is an ideal aperitif wine and goes well with all types of tapa, especially olives, nuts and Iberian cured ham.

Also providing the perfect companion for shellfish and fish, especially those with a marked salty taste (anchovies) or even raw (sashimi).

Its low acetic acid content combines exceptionally well with dishes of marked acidity (vinaigrette salads, marinades, etc.) as well as with cold soups (gazpacho, ajo blanco, etc.).
