The White Rum Rickey sprang from our online friendship with FUSSYlittleBLOG.com founder Daniel Berman. When we first met Fussy, we were inspired to create a drink for him, an overwrought watermelon rum shrub thingie that was far more complex than the concept called for, Years later, when we asked for a contribution to the book, his response was the rum rickey, a lesson in simplicity if ever there was one.
