Food Network: Our Sheeney’s Rickey “the District’s Official Cocktail”

Blog, Press

Food Network recently selected our Sheeney’s Rickey to represent D.C. in a roundup of 50 cocktails, the best from each U.S. state. Thanks for the press!

Sheeney’s Rickey is so refreshing, and perfect for this time of year in D.C. It was originally created at Shoomaker’s bar by bartender George A. Williamson in the 1880s in collaboration with Democratic lobbyist Colonel Joe Rickey, and has stood the test of time. The addition of lime has been credited to the bartenders at Shoomaker’s, and here at The Bully Bar we’ve added our own twist: lime foam from a CO2-charged whipper.

“Bubbly, aromatic and gently acidic,” our Sheeney’s Rickey “gives the original a run for its money,” according to Food Network. Read the full article – and see all 50 cocktails – here!

At The Bully Bar, the American bartender is back and classic cocktails are en vogue again, as they were during Teddy’s time – the Golden Era of Cocktail History, a period when the American bartender was arguably as iconic a cultural figure as the President himself.

Both “The Rickey” and “The Americano” are carbonated cocktails tapped in-house and served exclusively at Teddy & The Bully Bar.

Sheeney’s Rickey, one of The Food Network’s Top 50 Cocktails in the U.S., would make a fantastic signature drink at your next cocktail party, private event, corporate function or work happy hour. Teddy & The Bully Bar offers unique, customizable private event space for meetings, private dining, private parties, birthdays, rehearsal dinners, family reunions, bridal showers, corporate events, holiday parties and wedding receptions.
