Fall Gin Fizz
The classic gin fizz is a bright cocktail containing gin, acidic citrus juice, sugar and carbonated water. A few tweaks and a great apple flavor make this fall gin fizz perfect for the cool weather. Keep in mind that each brand of gin tastes different and will change the character of this drink. Some are sweet and floral, while others have that classic dry gin flavor of juniper. If you don’t think you’re a gin fan, you probably haven’t found the right one yet! We have lots of great varieties of gin made locally in the DC-Maryland-Virginia region, so drink local!
