Legend has it 'The Fizz" became wildly popular in America between 1900 and the 1940's. Known as a hometown specialty of New Orleans, the Gin Fizz was so popular that bars would employ teams of bartenders that would take turns shaking the drinks. We've used the Poor Toms Fool's Cut as the slightly higher ABV and strong juniper backbone brings this tall drink to life.
