New Orleans Gin FizzTuesday 11th September 2018
The New Orleans Gin Fizz is a taste of warmer climates. Exotic and creamy with a texture reminiscent of fluffy clouds, the velvety rich texture of Makar Old Tom partners perfectly with citrus and cream to create a beautifully indulgent treat perfect for the end of summer.
Created in 1888 by Henry Charles Ramos at the Imperial Cabinet Saloon on the corner of Gravier and Carondelet in New Orleans, the weekend is calling with this in hand.
60ml Makar Old Tom Gin
One-half lime freshly squeezed
One-half lemon freshly squeezed

Topped with soda water
Vigorously shake all ingredients except the soda water with ice in a cocktail shaker.

Top with soda water
Garnish with orange with mint
Recipe adapted from Difford's Guide, as featured in the Glasgowist.
