Sunday Sippin’: Gin Fizz

The earliest known fizz-style cocktail, the Gin Fizz is a classic imbibe that, when correctly made, showcases the flavors of any gin you choose as your base. With a bit of citrus and a touch of sweetness, a Gin Fizz is topped with club soda to give it that effervescent quality noted in its name.

2 oz Gin
1 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
Club Soda
1 Lemon Slice
1 Cherry

Combine gin, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake well. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Top with club soda and garnish with a lemon slice and cherry.
