Cocktail Recipe: Rosemary Gin Fizz
This is a guest post by Theresa Bennett. Follow her on instagram @madebytheresa!
The gin fizz is a classic cocktail dating back from the turn of the 19th century. It was such a popular drink in the early 1900s that bars would employ bartenders and barbacks simply to shake the drinks to make that fizz. Out of the “fizz” family, the gin fizz is by far the most popular choice and for good reason!
This month, we’re taking a little twist on the classic and adding some rosemary and honey to make those spring vibes seem a little closer...even if there is a few feet of snow still on the roads.
- 3 one-inch sprigs of fresh rosemary
- 1 small lemon, juiced
- ½ teaspoon honey
- 1½ ounces Green Hat gin
- 3 ounces club soda
In a small drinking glass, muddle the fresh rosemary, lemon juice and honey.
Insider tip: If you really like the aroma and taste of rosemary like I do, rub the sprigs of rosemary in between the palms of your hands before you muddle them. It’ll extract the flavor of the herb even more.
Fill the glass with ice, then pour in the gin and top with club soda.
Insider tip: Gin fizzes are typically served in a highball glass with two ice cubes. If the glass is chilled beforehand, even better!
Give it a little swirl with a straw or a spoon and you have yourself a flavorful gin fizz. Salud!
