Gin Fizz'licious: A classic twist on the Gin Fizz
The summer cocktail just got more delicious. A take on the classic gin fizz makes all your troubles go away. I’m always looking for a new way to create classic drinks. A drink that’s fresh with few ingredients and full of flavor.
Gin cocktails are one of those sophisticated drinks. The classic Tanqueray and tonic comes to mind with the lime twist. I trusted the ole' friend Tanqueray gin because it rarely disappoints. I believe this might be one of my Bogeys' buddies favorite branded gins (Amy).
Bogeys was a downtown bar from a million years ago located on Broadway between Water and Market Streets. It was a crazy, wild bar that many frequented for ice cold beer, a loud, headbanger band, and a game of quarters. Definitely not classy.
Class or no class, try this delicious treat. Few ingredients are required. Just sip on the patio or deck and enjoy.
Shot of Tanqueray
¼ of the juice from a grapefruit
½ teaspoon of powdered sugar
Sprig of fresh mint
Add ice chips to the shaker. Add the gin, grapefruit juice, and sugar to the shaker and shake it. In a tall glass, pour the mixture over cubed ice. Finish filling with club soda. Add a sprig of mint and a twist of grapefruit rind. Enjoy the flavor. The most wonderful sip is the first when you breathe in the mint before taking a drink. Fantastic.
