The Gin Fizz recipe is one of the oldest cocktails ever in print and has remained popular ever since Jerry Thomas mentioned it in his Bartender’s Guide of 1876. It’s made with only gin, lemon juice and syrup, plus a dash of Soda Water.
Here is some equipment you might need:
- 2 oz Gin
- 1 oz Sugar Syrup
- 1 oz Lemon Juice
- Soda Water
- Step 1 Add the gin, sugar syrup and lemon juice into a shaker with ice
- Step 2 Shake until chilled
- Step 3 Strain into a rocks glass
- Step 4 Top with Soda Water
