We love this easy recipe, it’s so refreshing and light. You can play around with other ingredients to add, too. We’ve already shared a rosemary lemon gin fizz with you and by simply swapping the gin for sloe gin, you create an entirely different drink altogether.

Making a Classic Gin Fizz

All you need is 5 minutes and a few simple ingredients. For this cocktail, you will need:

  • Gin (we go for mid range gin)
  • Sugar
  • Fresh Lemon Juice (fresh really is best, here)
  • Club Soda

You can’t go wrong with this classic gin fizz cocktail recipe. It’s uncomplicated, fresh, light, and timeless.

To make it, mix the gin, lemon juice, and a little sugar. Add ice and fill to the top of your glass with club soda. Simple!

By the way, if you (or anyone you’re making this for) wants to skip the gin, the lemon juice, sugar and club soda is pretty tasty.

Classic Gin Fizz Cocktail

  • PREP
  • TOTAL

You can’t go wrong with this classic gin fizz cocktail recipe. It’s uncomplicated, fresh, light and is a hit all year round. When we buy club soda, we prefer to buy the “sodium-free” bottle.

Makes 1 drink

You Will Need

2 ounces (4 tablespoons) gin

1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon powdered sugar

3 to 4 ounces club soda

Lemon slice

Directions

    Shake gin, lemon juice and powdered sugar in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into a glass filled with ice. Add club soda and garnish with lemon slice.

Adam and Joanne's Tips

  • For an alcohol-free version, leave out the gin and add more club soda. The slightly sweetened lemon juice mixed with club soda is very refreshing.

    That’s actually called a Tom Collins. Technically speaking, for that to be a Gin Fizz you’d omit the ice and garnish, and serve it in a fizz glass, which is essentially a shorter looking Collins glass.

    Cheers!
