Sloe Gin Fizz


Sloe Gin Fizz
This is deinitely an "Old School" cocktail.  Although sometimes associated with the prohibition era, today's version has been tweaked a bit to accomodate more modern tastes.  The highlight of the drink is still the flavor of the sweet Blackthorn (Sloe) berry, and when combined with citrus, Gin, and carbonation, you get a delicious, complex cocktail that is perfect for any Happy Hour.  We hope you enjoy our featured cocktail... Sloe Gin Fizz.  Cheers!
2 oz. Sloe Gin
1 oz. Gin
.75 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice (Rose's Lime Juice will do in a pinch)
1 Tbsp. Simple Syrup
3 oz. Soda Water (7-Up works too)
Cherry or Lime Wheel to garnish
Combine everything (except the Soda Water) into an ice filled cocktail shaker.  Cover, shake well, and pour into a Collins glass.  Add the Soda Water, give a gentle stir, garnish accordingly, and that's that.  We hope that you'll enjoy the tasty and colorful... Sloe Gin Fizz!  Thanks!
