You just 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 look for the “sodium-free” bottle. This is just our preference.

Yield: 1
You Will Need
  • 4 tablespoons (2 oz) gin
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 oz) lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 3-4 oz club soda
  • lemon slice
Directions
  1. 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 then garnish with lemon slice.
Notes and 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!
