The “Fizz” became widely popular in the US in the early 1900s. With varying styles, a basic fizz is a variation on a sour. It’s defining feature is the use of acidic juice and carbonated water. The Texas Fizz replaces the soda water for champagne for bubbles. Here, we update it with our Navy Gin and the use of our tonic syrup instead of the less flavorful grenadine.
- 1.5oz Navy Strength Gin
- 1/4-3/4oz Lemon Juice (depending on how sour your taste is)
- 3/4oz Quality Orange Juice
- 1/4oz Tonic Syrup
- 4oz Champagne or Sparkling Wine
Mix all but Wine into a shaker of ice. Shake until mixed. Strain into flute and top with wine. Add more tonic syrup for something a touch sweeter.
