The Fizz family of drinks are all made by adding some type of carbonated beverage to an acidic juice (notably limes or lemons). The Gin Fizz is probably the most famous, and holds a place among the “Unforgettables” in the American Bartenders Association’s listing of official cocktails.

We’re going to give you the recipe for the original Gin Fizz, but there are many variations which have become standard fare in bars around the world. The addition of an egg white is called a Silver Fizz, the yolk makes it a Golden Fizz, and the whole egg turns the drink into a Royal Fizz. Topping the drink with champagne instead of soda produces a French 75 cocktail.

The only real difference between a Tom Collins and a Gin Fizz is the brand of alcohol and size of the glass. For a Gin Fizz, you’re going to want to use a top-quality Gin because there’s not much in there that’s going to mask the flavour of a poor one. A Gin Fizz is served in a highball glass, which is smaller than the Tom Collins glass used for its namesake.

The Gin Fizz grew to popularity in the United States in the first half of the twentieth century, and variations including cream and eggs became a speciality of the city of New Orleans.

Here’s the recipe for a classic Gin Fizz:

Ingredients

  • 60ml Gin
  • 20ml Lemon juice
  • 15ml sugar syrup
  • Soda
  • Slice of lemon and mint leaf to garnish

Preparation

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add all ingredients except the soda
  3. Shake vigorously
  4. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice
  5. Top with soda
  6. Garnish with a lemon slice and a fresh mint leaf
