The delicate purple tone of this elegant cocktail is achieved by adding flavorful lavender syrup.
A fizz is a lemony, effervescent boozy beverage similar to a sour. Gin is the most commonly used liquor in the cocktail. Gin fizzes were highly popular in the 1940s and 50s, especially in the city of New Orleans, where bars used to employ teams of tenders just to shake the specialty drinks.
This lavender gin fizz recipe introduces an added layer of sophistication and variety to the cocktail by infusing it with sweet lavender syrup. The recipe also recommends sprinkling dried lavender over the tops of the glasses, which looks absolutely beautiful and is sure to impress party guests.
