The gin fizz is the best-known cocktail in the ‘fizz family’. Fizzes became widely popular in US between 1900 and the 1940s. Known as a hometown specialty of New Orleans, the gin fizz was so popular that bars would employ teams of bartenders who would take turns shaking the drinks.
Brass Razu’s gin fizz is a little different - it’s fruitier and razooier. Into a shaker, pour 30ml Chambord, 30ml Bombay Gin, 45ml fresh lemon juice, 30ml simple syrup* and one egg white. In your chosen glass, place seven to nine blueberries and two finger-widths of soda water.
Shake the ingredients without ice to create a smooth, creamy texture. Then shake WITH ice and strain the mixture into your chosen glass, add ice and garnish with mint and basil.
*To create this at home, mix 1:1 boiling water and caster sugar, stir until all sugar is dissolved and let the mixture cool down before use. Store excess in fridge.
