Gin and Ginger Fizz Recipe

Dan George | Mantitlement Updated

Gin and Ginger Fizz is a bright and sparkly cocktail you'll adore. An anticipation of spring!

I’m tired of the cold and the snow, we just got another foot of snow the other day. A foot.

It took me half a day just to clear out my walkways and driveway. And I see in the forecast there’s more snow coming later this week.

It’s getting crazy! So I’m going to pretend there are warmer days coming sooner rather than later and make myself a gin cocktail.

I’m not a huge gin drinker, but when I do have gin it’s always a gin and tonic with a lot of lime. And it’s usually warm outside and I’m sitting on my deck.

I don’t know why I consider gin to be a summer time liquor – I’m sure plenty of people drink it all winter long. And I know that there are many different ways to drink gin than just making a gin and tonic.

I’m really getting into ginger beer these days. After I made a Dark and Stormy with it, I kept experimenting with the flavors in different drinks.

You could try Brandy's Moscow Mule too, that looks pretty special - plus it requires special copper mugs that I need to add to my bar.

I thought spicy ginger beer would go together well with the juniper flavors in the gin – and it did. And then to sweeten it up a little I added a little elderflower liquor.

This gin and ginger fizz is as refreshing as it is tasty. Squeeze a couple lime wedges on top and you’ve got a cocktail that you can enjoy all year round.

I think I might even like this one better than my good ol’ gin and tonic. And I didn’t have to wait for the weather to warm up to enjoy it! It tasted just as good staring out into all that snow in my yard.
