This was Deeelicious. I don't usually drink gin but this was really great. At first I thought 1 ounce of sugar is an awful lot but went with the recipe and it turned out perfect. Next time I will keep some crushed ice in the glass though just to keep it cooler for a bit longer although it didn't last too too long. Using fresh lemons makes it very refreshing. Also I need to buy me an assortment of drinking glasses, I don't have much to choose from. Thanks so much for posting this recipe Malarkey, I really enjoyed it. Made for the Comfort Cafe '09
I'm looking for new ways to dress up gin and this was great! I realize it's not a "new" way, but it's new to me... loved it!
I've been looking for a basic Gin Fizz recipe for ages, after watching the TV series JEWEL IN THE CROWN and watching the Anglo-Indians scoffing down Gin Fizzes in the heat. This is tasty and refreshing, and will make a a great brunch/hangover-curing tipple for those who prefer something sweeter than a Bloody Mary!
