The American Fizz is an excellent Gin and Brandy based cocktail that tastes amazing and goes beautifully with dinner. It's an excellent combination of sweet and sour flavours in a cocktail that you are sure to love.
It's also a great way to make use of these stunning glasses from my home barware collection. I love the little vintage 1920's automotive motif and we found these during one of our many thrifting outings.
To prepare, combine 1 ounce of gin, 1 ounce of brandy, 1 tbsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp grenadine with ice in a beautiful glass and give it a stir. Garnish with some maraschino cherries and you are on your way to a stunningly photogenic cocktail.
We originally made this for thanksgiving but it's amazing for any time really. As long as you love lemony cherry flavoured cocktails!
Here's the recipe!
- 1 ounce gin
- 1 ounce brandy
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp grenadine
Stir well with ice and strain into glass.
