Why did we not shake this cocktail ?

For the City Rickey in particular, even though it has Cranberry and Lemon Juice within its ingredients, you should feel free to either shake the cocktail or not.

It is popular both ways and it’s also good both ways which makes it totally up to your personal preference !

Do you want to mix the ingredients together even more & dilute the cocktail ? Then Shake Ahead !

If not, then just build it inside the same glass and give it a light stir at the end.

Which way do you prefer ?
