A couple weeks back we shared the recipe for a Lemon Lavender Fizz and today we’ve decided to continue that flavour profile with a simple Lavender Gin Fizz. Perhaps better suited to more formal cocktail settings, a Gin Fizz is one of the most versatile drinks you can learn to make, because you can easily change the flavour profile by opting for a different liqueur or flavoured syrup, where you’d normally just add sugar or simple syrup.
We’re continuing our obsession with lavender and riffing off a traditional Gin Fizz recipe from the Savoy Cocktail Book, which if you don’t already own, you should definitely go and pick up. Not to be confused with the kind of fizz you’d add soda water, powdered sugar, and sometimes cream to make it extra frothy, like the Ramos Gin Fizz, this fizz is nice and light. It’s the perfect way to savour the last days of summer and highlight that beautiful lavender syrup you made a couple weeks backs.
In case you missed it find the recipe for lavender syrup here.
