The soft, floral flavor of Beefeater Dry Summer Edition Gin inspired me to play with a fruity, herbal twist on a favorite cocktail, the Gin Fizz.
This recipe adds pomegranate via PAMA Liqueur with just a hint of lavender to accent the gin. If necessary, pomegranate juice can be used and fresh lime juice and soda from a siphon or other seltzer maker are recommended.
Pour the spirits, juice, syrup, and egg white into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake vigorously (more than usual if using the egg white to ensure it is mixed thoroughly with the other ingredients).
Top off with soda water.
- While the egg is optional, it is recommended as well. The egg white adds a lovely texture that is common in classic fizz drinks and, though the drink is good without it, it does make a more luscious cocktail.
- At some point, you will have to find a substitute for the gin because this bottle of Beefeater will only available through the summer of 2010, so I suggest going with the lighter, new style of gins like Hendrick's or G'Vine. Any gin with a soft, unique profile will work wonders here.
