Gin Fizz

Gin Fizz Recipe

Gin gets its distinct flavor from juniper berries. While the juniper berry may resemble a berry, it is, in fact, a seed cone.


  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 ounces club soda
  • Lemon slice, to garnish




  1. Shake the gin, lemon juice and sugar in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Strain the contents of the shaker into an ice-filled highball or Collins glass.
  3. Pour in the club soda, and gently stir.
  4. Garnish with the lemon slice, and serve.
