All right, so berry-sims aren't everyone's cup of tea. To be honest, they aren't really my thing either. But I have been needing a little change of pace lately. So I thought I'd give it a shot.
This little berry was inspired by the Juniper berry (yes, I know it is not technically a true berry!) Historically used for a range of medicinal purposes, Juniper berries are now primarily used as a spice as well as the flavoring for gin. DRY Soda Company produces a Juniper Berry soda, which is one of my personal favorites. The sim is named after a classic cocktail, The Gin Rickey, which is made from gin, lime and seltzer (and thus her bubbly personality!)
About the Sim
Virginia "Gin" Rickey is a vivacious go-getter. Being an incurable optimist, her glass is always more than half-full and that is just the way she likes it. She is highly intelligent with a wide range of interests. Her willingness to try new activities makes her seem adventurous, but it is really her tendency towards restlessness that drives her inconsistency. Her current passions are split between the medical profession and her innate talents in the kitchen.
