Gin, fresh lime juice, sugar syrup and soda water are the ingredients of the classic Gin Fizz. However, over the years many variations have evolved including:
Silver Fizz - with egg white
Gold Fizz - with egg yolk
Royal Fizz - with whole egg
Green Fizz - with a dash of green crème de menthe
Underrated and not everyone’s first choice, I really enjoy a Gin Fizz to get the evening underway. It’s a refreshing long drink that deserves more attention.
