Albemarle Fizz

Okay, second chance.

Abelmarle Fizz:
  • 2 oz. Gin (Seagrams)
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon (3/4 oz.)
  • 1 tsp. Sugar
Shake well and strain into 7 oz. Highball glass, and then top with club soda. Add 1 tsp. raspberry syrup.

I did it correctly this time. No ice in the glass, just chilled club soda to top. And I gotta say, I like it. The large increase in the amount of the club soda really increased the fizzy-ness and gave the drink a delightful texture. The bit of raspberry syrup (which is, in a nutshell, a few raspberries muddled in some simple syrup) added a bit of flavor and actually kept the drink fizzy. Of course, it sank immediately to the bottom and didn't incorporate into the drink, which may or may not have been due to the density of the syrup I was using, but whenever you do something like this, adding the syrup last, it's going to do that. But just by virtue of the drink being full of club soda, and the syrup making its way down to the bottom, there was a hint of raspberries imparted to the drink that was nice.
